ČVUT team launches experimental engine with GE Aviation

The team of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering of the Czech Technical University in Prague (ČVUT) in cooperation with GE Aviation has launched an experimental engine at its King Air 350 flying test facility, which is preparing for its first flight. ČVUT informed that the twin-engine aircraft is now modified at Berlin- Schönefeld Airport by Berlin Beechcraft Aviation for experimental operation, where one wing will run the original engine of the current generation, while the other wing is installed a prototype engine of a new generation, on which ČVUT’s team will perform experiments.
