GE Aviation receives more than 200 CF34 engine orders in past six months
GE Aviation received firm orders for more than 200 CF34 engines from customers since December 2012. Orders include 47 firm orders and 47 options for CF34-powered E175 aircraft from Republic Airways (January), five CF34-powered Embraer E175 and 15 CF34-powered E175 aircraft from Aldus Aviation (January), 40 firm orders and 30 options for CF34-powered Bombardier CRJ900 Next-Gen Aircraft from Delta (December) and two CF34-powered E175 aircraft from Fuji Dream Airlines of Japan (December). “2013 will be a strong year for CF34 engine orders as several North American regional jet operators are expected to make fleet renewal decisions,” said Allen Paxson, general manager of the CF34 Engine Program at GE Aviation. GE has delivered more than 5,700 CF34 engines since it entered service in 1992. The CF34 engine is in service with 200 operators in more than 70 countries. The engines have accumulated more than 92 million flight hours and 75 million cycles on Bombardier CRJ and Embraer E-Jet aircraft, and they have set the standard for dispatch reliability of 99.95%.
