The GP7000 family is derived from enhancements to two of the most successful wide body engine programs in aviation history – The GE90 and PW4000 families. These engines have demonstrated industry leading ETOPS reliability from service entry. Building on the GE90 core and the PW4000 low spool heritage, the GP7200 is a refined derivative with a responsible infusion of new, proven technologies.
The GP7200 engine has benefited from the ongoing technology programs at GE and P&W, and is well positioned to provide best-in-class performance and reliability for the Airbus A380.
The GP7200 is certified at 76,500 lb. (340 kN) and 81,500 lb. (363 kN). The 81,500 lb thrust level will be available to accommodate any future higher capacity A380 variants.
