i'm looking for a GE 90 engine on a stand somewhere in the US that can be used as a static training device. Willing to talk price for access.

It's right next to my Trent 892. I keep them out in the shed in my backyard. You can HAVE the GE. I'm more of a Rolls Royce fan, myself  Wink/being sarcastic

what the hell kind of traing would you need this for? If you were to actually LEGALLY work on one, you would get trained on them. Sounds kind of fishy, I'm with JBirdAV8r on this one.

pretty much with JBird as well.... though I realize that the GE90 does slap the Trent800 around like a little b!tch, but still Big grin

I know where you can get some RB-211s cheap, really.

If you're really an instructor, teaching, a high-bypass engine is a high-bypass engine, right?

Easy there TSA wannabes!

Any organization that provides JAA 147 approved training is required by regulation (legally, in other words) to include a practical training portion, also known as OJT. The training can be accomplished on a static engine without requiring disassembly, destruction, sabotage, et al.

LOL... TSA wannabes? now that is a slap in the face. hahaha. in all seriousness, I think in this time of terrorism, we all kinda freaked when someone off the street wants to have a GE90. The one place you would need to ask, it GE itself at GE Aircraft Engines in Ohio. You would have to prove what this is for and then you would probably have to conduct all training under the supervision of GE personell since you are not a known customer. On top of that, the $8-10 million dollar engine would be a bitch to find.

I don't know about being freaked out by a request to use a static GE90. It begs the question why? but not much more. Even if you had a GE90, it is not something you could sneak up in front of someone and flip on.

Good luck with the training.
