Headquartered in Evendale, Ohio, GE Aviation is one of the leading aircraft engine suppliers for commercial aircrafts. It is a subsidiary of General Electric which is one of the world’s largest corporations.In 2011, Fortune ranked GE the 6th-largest firm in the U.S. as well as the 14th-most profitable and for 2012, GE’s brand was valued at an estimated USD$28.8 billion. Earlier today at an undisclosed location, GE Aviation successfully tested the F414 turbofan demonstrator engine’s rotating low-pressure turbine blades which were made up of lightweight, ceramic matrix components. The purpose of the test was to confirm the temperature and durabilities of the heat-resistant CMC turbine blades and it did just that. The test resulted in record-breaking temperature and fuel burn achievements. As the engine changes, the CMC components are changed from a static state to a rotating one, and this is where the challenge lies.
