Launched in 1990, the GE90 engine is GE Aerospace’s first engine in the 100,000 pound thrust class and became the most technologically advanced commercial turbofan engine in 25 years.
Powering the twin-engine Boeing 777 aircraft, the GE90 engine combined record thrust and high reliability with lower noise, emissions, and fuel consumption to become an iconic jet engine recognized worldwide for its size and innovations.
