CF34s engines soar in production and sales
The CF34 engine captured more than 470 orders in the last 12 months as airlines revitalized their regional jet fleets. The rising order book is also boosting production rates for the engine. CF34 production rates will grow from more than 330 engines in 2013 to close to 400 engines in 2014 and more than 475 engines by 2016. GE has delivered more than 5,900 CF34 engines and has continuously invested in product enhancements since it entered service in 1992. Today, CF34 engines are in service with 200 operators in more than 70 countries. The engines have accumulated more than 100 million flight hours and 80 million cycles on Bombardier CRJ and Embraer E-Jet aircraft.
