GE Aviation to certify new aerobatic turboprop H Series engine

GE Aviation has submitted a type certification request to the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for GE's first aerobatic turboprop engine. The new H Series Aerobatic engine model will feature the first Electronic Engine and Propeller Control system (EEPC) in its class. EEPC will significantly reduce pilot workload and provide automatic limiting functions. With certification expected in 2018, the H Series Aerobatic engine is tailored for leisure and training for light aircraft in the 550-850 SHP range.

"We continue to invest in the H Series product line, as well as the turboprop market, to develop innovative solutions for our customers," said Norman Baker, President & Managing Executive of GE's Business & General Aviation Turboprops. "We are pleased to introduce a new H Series product line extension, an aerobatic engine. It will be best-in-class in terms of performance and technology to meet the rugged demands of the high-performance turboprop market."

The GE H Series Aerobatic engine features outstanding operability and maneuver duration. It will be the first certified aerobatic engine featuring the EEPC system in its power category. EEPC technology enables control of both the engine and propeller operation with a single lever. It is a true game changer in the aerobatic turboprop market.

The GE H Series engine with the EEPC system received its type certification from EASA last December, followed by its Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) type certificate in March. The EEPC-equipped H Series has already been selected for four aircraft applications.

The H Series turboprop family incorporates GE's 3-D aerodynamic design techniques and advanced materials to create a powerful, fuel-efficient, durable engine. Adding more value, there are no recurrent fuel nozzle inspections or intermediate hot section inspection required. The H Series turboprop serves a multitude of uses: agricultural, business turboprops, commuter and utility aircraft.
