Engine Alliance delivers first production GP7200 engines to Airbus

Earlier this month, the Engine Alliance delivered the first set of four GP7200 production engines to Airbus headquarters in Toulouse, France, where they will be installed on the first A380 aircraft for Emirates.

The GP7200, the most fuel-efficient engine, for the A380, has completed the majority of the A380 flight test requirements and recently concluded noise certification testing in Moron de la Frontera, Spain.

The GP7200-powered A380 is on track to receive Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) airworthiness certifications in December.

In addition to Emirates, the GP7200 engine has been selected by Air France, Korean Airlines and International Lease Finance Corporation to power their A380's.

The Engine Alliance, a 50/50 joint venture between GE Aviation and Pratt & Whitney, was formed in May 1996 to develop, manufacture, sell, and support a family of modern-technology engines for new high-capacity, long-range aircraft.
