GE Aviation has renewed the Tusas Engine Industries (TEI) joint venture with Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) for another 25 years. Under this agreement, TEI will continue to provide critical parts for commercial, military, and marine engines through 2035, with TAI retaining a majority ownership in the joint venture. GE Aviation's relationship with TEI began in 1985 with the establishment of a facility for production of F110 engines that power F-16 aircraft for the Turkish Air Force. TEI now produces more than 560 different engine parts.

After many years of flat-lining in the supply of new commercial jet engines—with improved models, but with designs dating back to the late 1990s, relying on a continuous path of evolutionary development—a new generation of super-efficient powerplants is entering service, introducing many technologies that will also be applied to future engines.
SAE International is working with the joint-venture initiative looking to deploy a high-powered DC fast-charging network for battery electric vehicles (BEVs) covering long-distance travel routes in Europe.
Fuel efficiency—and the economic and ecological benefits associated with it—continues to be the white rabbit of the global aviation industry. While engine builders look toward composites and electrification, and airframe designers toward lightweighting and aerodynamics, engineers at NASA’s Glenn Research Center recently completed testing of a novel concept: the boundary layer ingesting propulsor.
S.S. White Technologies is supplying flexible rotary shafts for the Honeywell Aerospace Air Turbine Starter on the next-gen GE Aviation GE9X high-bypass turbofan engines.
