Jeanne Edwards, plant manager at GE Aviation in Batesville, Miss., holds a composite fan platform.

Jeanne Edwards, plant manager at GE Aviation in Batesville, Miss., holds a composite fan platform. The platform is installed between the fan blades of the engine and is a key component of the fan system of GE Aviation’s new GEnx jet engine as it reduces weight and saves fuel.

The Batesville plant will manufacture 18 lightweight carbon fiber fan platforms per GEnx engine. Composite fan platforms are ultra durable and a fraction of the weight of conventional metals. GE Aviation invests $1 billion annually in jet propulsion R&D programs. This long tradition of commitment to new technology has helped GE maintain its leadership position within the industry with a proud list of “firsts” in both military and commercial jet propulsion, tracing back to 1942 with America’s first jet engine.
