The world works better when it flies

We take seriously our role in shaping the future of flight, and we have the spirit, ambition and means to deliver now, in the near term and for the next three decades. It can’t happen without optimal fuel efficiency, and no one is better positioned to meet this challenge than GE Aerospace.



Better fuel efficiency

GE Aerospace's commercial engines today are designed to be 40% more fuel efficient compared to engines made in the 1970s.



in Research and Development

Our research and development spending in 2023 was $2.3 billion, including GE Aerospace customer and partner funding.



Target CO2 reduction

With next-generation technologies, our goal is to further improve fuel efficiency and reduce CO2 emissions by 20% compared to today's most efficient engines.



Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF)

All GE Aerospace engines can operate on approved Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) today and GE engines have been successfully tested with 100% SAF that doesn’t require blending with conventional jet fuel.
