    <P>Sixteen years after development of <A href="http://www.geaviation.com/" target=_blank>General&nbsp;Electric's </A>T407 turboprop was shelved following cancellation of the US Navy's Lockheed P-7 maritime patrol aircraft, Sikorsky has selected a turboshaft derivative of the 6,000shp-class (4,470kW) engine, the GE38-1B, to power the CH-53K heavylift helicopter.</P> <P>The GE38 has been selected over the Pratt &amp; Whitney Canada PW150 and Rolls-Royce AE1107 to power the triple-turbine CH-53K, which is under development to replace the US Marine Corps' Sikorsky CH-53E Super Stallions. Sikorsky was awarded the $3 billion contract to develop the CH-53K in April 2006.</P> <P>The T407 turboprop never made it into production, but the GE38 core was used in the GE/Honeywell CFE738 turbofan, production of which is winding down as its only application, the Dassault Falcon 2000 business jet, is phased out in favour of a re-engined version.</P> <P>The CH-53K's three GE38s will power a new rotorhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Sikorsky-revives-General-Electrics-shelved-T407-with-turboshaft-selection-for-US-Navy-CH-53K-211323/
