GE Aviation: 100 Years of Reimagining Flight tells the personal stories and technology triumphs behind a world-changing aviation company.

Headquartered today in the Cincinnati suburb of Evendale, Ohio, GE Aviation was born boosting the power of biplanes in the skies over Dayton, Ohio, in 1919, and became a pioneer jet propulsion company in Lynn, Massachusetts, in the 1940s. In the 1950s and 1960s, GE engines from Evendale enabled jet fighters and bombers to set multiple speed records, while Lynn engines drove helicopter and business jet technology.

GE Aviation entered the 21st century at the vanguard of aircraft propulsion, powering classic commercial jetliners and regional jets as well as historic military aircraft, such as the F-16 and F-18, the B-2 bomber, and the Black Hawk helicopter.
