GE Aviation is preparing to assemble the first Passport engine for the Bombardier Global 7000 and Global 8000 aircraft.
“The results of the component and fan rig tests on the Passport engine have demonstrated the outstanding capabilities of the advanced technologies and material in the new engine,” said Brad Mottier, vice president and general manager of GE Aviation’s Business and General Aviation organization. “We remain confident in the engine’s performance and look forward to testing the first Passport engine next year.”
