General Electric TF34 Turbofan

The General Electric TF34 turbofan engine was originally developed for the US Navy's S-3A Viking surveillance and precision-targeting aircraft. It enables the A-10 Thunderbolt close-air support aircraft to operate from short, remote airfields and withstand frequent exposure to ground fire. The 9,000-pound thrust class engine delivers the highest thrust-to-weight ratio and the lowest specific fuel consumption of its class. In service, the engine has proven to be highly reliable and maintainable with low operating costs. The commercial version of the TF34, the General Electric CF34, powers several types of business jets and regional airliners.
