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.

Try the GE plant in CVG / KCVG), USA - Kentucky">CVG Ohio.

Should have posted this last week. I did some spring cleaning and sold the one I had lying around at my garage sale.

 Big thumbs up

You're kidding, right?

If you need to teach the GE90, chances are you're supported by GE, an airline, or both. If not, the GE web site is as good as it gets for you.

This post is as funny as others that request gouge on starting an airline (costs), or actually aquiring an a/c...if you have to ask on this forum, chances are you don't have any business asking.

ERAU has one, talk with an airline to see if they want to donate an old one.
At worst, you screw up and die.

Oy, so much for trying to keep posts brief!

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. The manufacturer is not necessarily approved to provide this type of training, and the company providing the training is not required to actually own the equipt.. JAA regs mandate that companies maintaining or operating the equipment complete the training prior to beginning operation or maintenance actions, which in many cases means before actually owning or having access to the equipment.

Sorry the initial post caused such surprise to some readers, but since their isn't a specific 'training' forum and in the interest of brevity I left it to the reader to determine whether it applied to their area of expertise or not.
