General Electric GE90 is a family of high-bypass turbofan engines built by GE-Aviation for the Boeing 777, with thrust ranging from 74,000 to 115,000 lbf (329 to 512 kN). It was first introduced in November 1995 on British Airways' 777s, and is only available on the 777. The engine is one of three options for the 777-200, -200ER, and -300, and the exclusive engine of the -200LR and -300ER.

The GE90 series are physically the largest engines in aviation history, the fan diameter of the original series being 123 in (312 cm). The latest variant, the GE90-115B, has a fan diameter of 128 in (325 cm). This means that the GE90 has a larger diameter than most cabins in business aircraft as well as smaller airliners such as the Bombardier CRJ family, and is only slightly smaller than the 3.7-metre cabin width of the Boeing 737. According to the Guinness Book of Records, at 127,900 lbf (569 kN), it holds the record for the highest thrust (though it is rated at 115,300 lbf (513 kN)). This thrust record was accomplished inadvertently as part of a one hour triple red-line engine stress test. In order to accommodate the increase in torsional stresses an entirely new steel alloy, GE1014, had to be created and then machined to extreme tolerances. The Bombardier CRJ or Bombardier Canadair Regional Jet is a family of regional airliner manufactured by Bombardier, and based on the Canadair Challenger business jet. ...

On November 10, 2005, the GE90 entered the Guinness Book of Records for a second time. It powered a 777-200LR during the world's longest flight by a commercial airliner, though there were no fare-paying passengers on the flight, only journalists and invited guests. The 777-200LR flew 13,422 miles in 22 hours 42 minutes, flying from Hong Kong to London "the long way": over the Pacific, over the continental U.S., then over the Atlantic to London.[1] (The longest flight by a commercial airliner with passengers was 18 hours, flown by an Airbus A340-500 aircraft.) is the 314th day of the year (315th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

Developed from the 1970s NASA Energy Efficient Engine, the GE90 10-stage high pressure compressor develops a pressure ratio of 23:1, an industry record. The GE90-115B fan is an advanced design made from composite materials and featuring swept rotor blades. This article is about the American space agency. ... A cloth of woven carbon fiber filaments, a common element in composite materials Composite materials (or composites for short) are engineered materials made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties and which remain separate and distinct on a macroscopic level within the finished structure. ...


At least one technical paper presented on behalf of one of GE's project partners indicates that further thrust improvement programs will be promoted should a market for higher thrusts arise. For comparison purposes, the Boeing 747-400's largest engines produce 63,300 lbf (289 kN) of thrust. It is therefore likely that the next version or successor of the Boeing 777 will be powered with a later version or derivation of this engine and will produce twice the thrust of the most powerful fitted to the venerable 747. The Boeing 747, sometimes nicknamed the Jumbo Jet,[4][5] is long-haul, widebody commercial airliner manufactured by Boeing in the United States. ...


They can only be airfreighted in assembled form by outsize cargo aircraft such as the Antonov An-124 'Condor', presenting unique problems if due to emergency diversions, a 777 was stranded in a place without the proper spare parts. If the fan is removed from the core, then they may be shipped on a 747 Freighter. As a consequence, airlines often utilize above average levels of preventive maintenance on their GE90's in order to minimize such risks. On December 17, 2005 a GE90-94B failed on an Air France 777 flying from Seoul to Paris resulting in an unscheduled landing in Irkutsk, Siberia. A replacement engine was flown via an An-124 and the engines were exchanged. The cause of the failure is still under investigation [2]. The Antonov An-124 Ruslan (NATO reporting name: Condor) was the largest aircraft ever mass produced (until production of the Airbus A380), and was, until the advent of the An-225 Mriya, the largest aircraft in production. ...

The GEnx engine that has been developed for Boeing's 787, 747-8 and certain versions of Airbus' A350 is derived from the GE90. Engine Alliance, a cooperative venture between GE Aircraft Engines and Pratt & Whitney, developed a separate GE90 derivative engine for the Airbus A380 called the GP7200.
