World’s Largest Jet Engine
This week at the Dubai Air Show, GE Aviation received the largest order in its history for 450 of the new GE9x engines. With front fans 11-feet in diameter, the GE9x engines are the world’s largest jet engines and are currently still in development. They employ cutting-edge technology like 3-D printed fuel nozzles, carbon composite fan blades, and heat-resistant ceramic matrix composites inside the high-pressure turbine. The new technologies will make the engines lighter, quieter and more fuel efficient, and will also help reduce emissions.
