The rugged GE3000 offers 25% more range than today's capability and literally takes tomorrow's mission capability to greater heights.Download Brochure
Driven by the goals set forth by the U.S. Army's Improved Turbine Engine Program (ITEP) program, the GE3000 turboshaft engine will meet a wide range of operational needs.
These goals, which include 20% longer engine life, 25% reduced fuel consumption and 35% reduced maintenance costs, are being implemented due to budgetary constraints in a time when military helicopters are increasingly asked to do more.
That's where the GE3000 comes in. By combining advanced technologies with lessons learned from more than 35 years of operating and combat helicopter experience, the GE3000 will answer the call of duty to power Black Hawk and Apache helicopters for the next four decades, as well as potential use on other aircraft.
The GE3000 delivers added power and reduced fuel consumption while doubling ammunition payload, enhancing maneuverability and increasing time on station.
Designed to support complex requirements in hot and high environment, the GE3000 will increase operational range by 25% over its predecessor.
Even in austere environments, the GE3000 will increase payload by 50% and will mass combat power 25% faster than its predecessor.
The GE3000 will help wounded troops receive medical assistance faster with a higher OGE hover ceiling and extended operation range.
