With the GE90, GE introduced the composite fan blade the first-ever in commercial aviation. Measuring more than four feet long and weighing less than 50 pounds, the GE90 fan blade is made from carbon fiber and a toughened epoxy matrix that delivers double the strength and one-third the weight of titanium. The GE90 fan blade’s uniquely curved design makes it larger, lighter and more aerodynamic than traditional titanium blades for reduced engine weight and lower fuel burn. Plus, the aerodynamic design allows the GE90 fan blade to pull large amounts of air into the engine, making it quieter and more efficient while generating 115,000 lbs of unrivaled thrust. A later variant, the GE90-115B fan blade, was introduced into New York’s Museum of Modern Art in 2007 as a perfect example of cutting-edge engineering, design and beauty. Designed specifically for the Boeing 777 aircraft, the GE90 is the world’s most powerful turbofan engine.
