CF34-10E Shows Improved Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT)

The CF34-10E engine shows excellent Exhaust Gas Temperature (EGT) margin retention, reports the GE Aviation. The engine is also exceeding expectations for time spent on the wing. Kathy MacKenzie, General Manager of Regional Engines and Services at GE Aviation, said: "The engine is lasting 20 percent longer on wing to its first-shop visit, which means operators are flying the engine up to 18,000 flight hours before removing it from their aircraft wings." GE suggests improvements in EGT could provide operators with $300,000 in fuel savings per aircraft.
