GE Aviation launched two derivatives of its recently certified 800-shp H80 turboprop engine–the 750-shp H75 and 850-shp H85. Like the H80, the H75 and H85 will be aimed at the agricultural, commuter, utility and business turboprop segments. EASA and FAA certification of the derivative engines is expected early next year. The H75 and H85 will be certified and manufactured at GE Aviation’s facility in the Czech Republic, where production of the H80 is already under way.
