In 1995, the GE90 engine debuted aboard a British Airways 777 airplane along with commercial aviations first-ever carbon-fiber composite fan blades. Early GE90 engine models boasted outputs between 74,000 and 94,000 lbs. of thrust, and today it remains the worlds largest turbofan engine.
GE has continued to improve upon the GE90 design with larger variants (-110B and -115B) built exclusively for Boeings largest 777 models (777-200LR and 777-300ER). The GE90 is now the best-selling engine for that aircraft family.
Snecma of France, Avio Aero of Italy and IHI Corporation of Japan are all revenue-sharing participants in the GE90 program.
