ACR is in top gear after officials at the airshow announced the award of two multi-year contracts from General Electric worth more than $37million.

GE has chosen ACR gearboxes for military and commercial aircraft engines.

The military contract, worth $13 million, is for accessory and power takeoff gearboxes for GE's F414 and F110 turbine engines.

These will be used on the engines for the US Navy's new F/A-18E/F and US Air Force F-16 fighter aircraft.

The commercial contract, worth more than $24 million, is to produce gearboxes for CFM56 turbofan engines.

These gearboxes will be used on commercial aircraft including the Boeing 737, DC-10 and Airbus A340.

A wide selection of gearboxes are on display at the stand in Hall 3/D13b.
