GE's Big Bet on Goliath Engines

Published by : GE Aviation
In 1990, Brian Rowe bet $2 billion on a revolutionary jet engine design that would go on to influence three decades of propulsion. The GE90's concept, architecture and technologies allowed for extraordinary gains in the aviation industry, culminating in the new GE9X engine for the Boeing 777X.

In more than a century of building engines and powering flight, GE Aviation has never stopped innovating. That's because we believe there's always a way to do things better.

GE works on things that matter. The best people and the best technologies taking on the toughest challenges. Finding solutions in energy, health and home, transportation and finance. Building, powering, moving and curing the world. Not just imagining. Doing. GE works.

Learn how the GE90 influenced every engine from the last three decades. The revolutionary technologies of the GE9X will take it to the next level.
