OUR GP7200 POWERS THE A380. EMPOWERING THE OPERATOR.

Our customers can focus on their passengers because they're confident their engines are delivering the most efficient, reliable operation for their largest aircraft.

Take a Look Under the Hood of the GP7200

The confidence built into the GP7200 engine design comes from the historic collaboration of two industry giants, General Electric Co. (NYSE:GE) and Pratt & Whitney of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX). Based on engine technology that's been proven over 72 million hours of reliable operation from two companies with nearly two centuries of combined experience. The advantage shows in every part.
