GE Aviation Systems is looking to rename its integrated vehicle health monitoring system now that it is ready to see it enter service. The product has a launch application on an undisclosed business jet and is also being evaluated by prospective airline clients. “This turns unscheduled events into scheduled events and could save roughly $8 billion for the industry,” said president and CEO Lorraine Bolsinger.

She also told AIN that the company is “getting more enthusiastic about the renaissance of turboprops.” GE is talking to airframers about developing new integrated propulsion systems that would encompass the engines, propellers and nacelles.
