An interesting article regarding future engine developments for the 777X and 787-10.


GE and Rolls push advanced engine developments for 777X and final stretch of 787

A version of this article appears in the July 14 edition of Aviation Week & Space Technology.

Engine development has always been the pacing item in aircraft development, but as powerplant manufacturers strive to meet the increasingly ambitious performance targets of the next-generation Boeing twins, the pressure is greater than ever for early test success.

This is no more keenly felt than by General Electric, which is developing the GE9X as the sole-source engine for Boeing’s new long-haul 777X derivative family. The engine is targeting a 10% fuel-burn improvement over the GE90-115B, the engine for the current 777-200LR/300ER series, and meeting this goal while delivering as much as 105,000-lb. takeoff thrust is pivotal to achieving the aircraft’s overall performance aims.

The world's largest jet engine is already more powerful than the first manned US space rocket
Fifty-five years ago this week, on 5 May, 1961, US Navy pilot Alan Shepard became the first American to reach space. His capsule sat atop the Mercury-Redstone 3 rocket, propelled by a single engine that produced 78,000 pounds of thrust.
