GE Aviation Takes On a Titan with New Turboprop
GE is launching new 850- to 1,650-shp turboprop family that targets a market dominated by the Pratt & Whitney Canada PT6.
GE Aviation is looking to take on Pratt & Whitney Canada’s venerable PT6 line with the launch of a new 850- to 1,650-shp turboprop family, and its first key win under its belt. GE Aviation formally launched the first entry of the still unnamed family, a 1,300-shp turboprop, which will power Textron Aviation’s new single-engine turboprop (SETP).
