GE is incorporating sophisticated technologies into the H80 to elevate it to even higher levels of performance. Modern 3D aero design and advanced materials have been integrated into the compressor stages and turbine of the engine's gas generator. A blisk design, replacing individually bladed compressor disks, has also been incorporated in the axial compressor stages. Materials with higher temperature capabilities have been introduced into the turbine nozzle guide vanes of both the gas generator and power turbine. These technologies deliver more shaft horsepower, improve engine fuel efficiency and provide increased temperature margin, significantly enhancing hot-day takeoff performance and high-altitude cruise speeds.
ZHUHAI, CHINA -- The China Aviation Industry General Aircraft Co., Ltd. (CAIGA) selected GE Aviation's new H85 turboprop engine to power CAIGA's Primus 150 aircraft, which is a five-seat business aircraft.
GE's new H80 turboprop engine has completed its first flight on the Thrush 510G aerial applicator, which flew on November 23, in Albany, Georgia.
