GE’s newest turboshaft engine gets FAA certification
The CT7-2E1 turboshaft engine has received certification from the FAA
The CT7-2E1 engine is the latest civil-certified addition to the CT7/T700 family of engines with a full authority digital electronic control (FADEC) system and hot section for power and reliability.
“We are very pleased with the successful certification of the CT7-2E1,” said Lisa Coroa-Bockley, GE’s CT7 programs director. “GE has a proven track record of continuously advancing engines with new technology to support the extensive demands for power, quality and reliability of new aircraft applications. The AW189 is an example of a great match of an advanced new helicopter with state-of-the-art engine technology.”
The first production-certified CT7-2E1 engines will be delivered to AgustaWestland later this month.
