GE starts ADVENT core tests

General Electric has started testing the core of its next-generation ADVENT engine, the company announced earlier today (October 11). The company’s work on ADVENT will feed into the US Air Force’s follow-on Adaptive Engine Technology Development (AETD) effort–which will eventually power later versions of the Lockheed Martin F-35 and potentially a sixth-generation follow-on to the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor.
