GE Aviation is providing the newest technologies to Vietnamese airlines, treating Vietnam as a focal point as the country grows into a regional hub of business and tourism.
Offering revolutionary technologies
Two new technologies, 3D printing and ceramic matrix composites, have revolutionized the aviation industry in the past year.
Starting in 2015, the fist-sized piece of silver metal – which houses the compressor inlet temperature sensor inside a jet engine – became a symbol of one of the biggest changes in modern jet engine design.
The housing for the sensor, known as T25, became the first 3D-printed part certified by the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to fly inside GE commercial jet engines.
