LYNN, Mass. -- GE Aviation congratulates Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company, on the 40th anniversary of the Black Hawk. Sikorsky delivered the first H-60 Black Hawk, powered by GE’s T700 engine, on Oct. 31, 1978, to answer the U.S. Army’s call for a new helicopter and powerplant capable of significant performance and reliability improvements with reduced lifecycle costs. Today, more than 4,000 GE-powered Black Hawk aircraft of all types are in service worldwide.

Through continuous upgrades and technology advancements, GE has doubled the power of derivative engines in the T700 family over its lifetime and reduced its cost to the government by 50 percent.

Coincidentally, GE Aviation also submitted its final proposal revision (FPR) for the U.S. Army’s Improved Turbine Engine Program (ITEP) on Oct. 31. GE is offering its XT901-GE-900 engine for ITEP, the U.S. Army’s endeavor to re-engine its Sikorsky H-60 Black Hawks and Boeing AH-64 Apaches. The Army is also expecting the ITEP engine to meet Future Attack Reconnaissance Aircraft requirements for Future Vertical Lift (FVL). Army Contracting Command (ACC), based at Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Ala., plans to down select to one engine manufacturer for the Engineering and Manufacturing Development phase in the next few months.
