Model CF6-80A


Twinjet Reliability

The CF6-80A capitalized on technology derived from earlier CF6 engines to power new short-to-medium range twinjet aircraft.


Engine Overview

In the late 1970s, an advanced model in the CF6 family was introduced for new short-to-medium range commercial jetliners as well as for advanced models of existing commercial aircraft.

The CF6-80A, which has a thrust rating of 48,000-50,000 pounds, was selected by domestic and foreign airlines to power two new twinjets, the Boeing 767 and Airbus Industrie A310. The GE-powered Boeing aircraft entered airline service in 1982, the GE powered A310 in early 1983.
