The GE Aviation H80 turboprop engine received FAA certification yesterday, some three months after obtaining EASA approval. According to GE, the H80 is a more powerful and fuel-efficient variant of the former Walter M601 engine. It also fields a 3,600-hour time between overhaul and no hot-section inspections. The first aircraft to enter service with the H80 engine will be the Thrush 510G agricultural airplane. The H80 has also been selected to power the Aircraft Industries L-410 regional turboprop, which is expected to enter service by year-end.
