At a July 12th ceremony for GE Aviation's 100th anniversary, GE employees celebrated a surprise announcement. The GE9X engine for the Boeing 777X set a new GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS title for thrust to become the most powerful commercial aircraft jet engine (test performance) after reaching 134,300 pounds. This achievement breaks the record held by GE’s GE90-115B engine of 127,900 pounds set in 2002.
