GE Aviation’s new H75 and H85 turboprop engines received EASA certification yesterday. The two new powerplants are, respectively, 750-shp and 850-shp derivatives of the H80 engine, which is itself a derivative of the former Walter M601. FAA type certification of the H75 and H85 is expected next year. Last week, China Aviation Industry General Aircraft Co. (Caiga) selected the H85 to power its five-seat Primus 150 turboprop single. This will be the first application for this 850-shp engine.
