GE Honda’s very small engine for very light jets

Does General Electric now have the widest range of aircraft engines in the industry, in thrust terms at least, following the first full engine run of a GE Honda HF120 in Japan?

The HF120 demonstrator reached its maximum 2,095lb thrust on the first run. That is less than 2% of the power output of the GE90-115B, which reached a record-breaking 127,900lb thrust in 2002.

To help you visualise, this is the GE90-115B:

And, to the same scale, this is the HF120:
