PARIS — Asked by The Air Current at the Paris Air Show, Larry Culp, CEO of GE Aerospace, said that a possible engine offering from the U.S. engine maker through its CFM joint venture on a notional 170-seat A220-500 was something the company was actively considering. “Idon’tthinkwewould,atthispoint,ruleanythinginoranythingout.Ithinkalloptionsareonthetable,” said Culp. Airbus has sought a second engine option for the conceptual aircraft alongside the Pratt & Whitney PW1500G along with transcontinental range currently out of the reach of the existing engine and wing combination. The aircraft would compete directly with Boeing’s 737 Max 8, which is powered exclusively by CFM’s Leap-1B engine.
