The most advanced crop duster ever produced is now flying across the American heartland. Powered by GE's H80 engine, this plane can fly at low altitude (as low as 15 feet), reach breathtaking speeds (over 150 MPH), and takes to the sky quickly -- using less than a third of the runway length needed for a small commercial airplane.
Whether your father owned a crop duster or not, after you see the way this aircraft soars through the air we think you'll agree it is a beautiful sight. It's not just a pretty picture though -- H80 engines feature advanced science and technology, and the planes that are powered by it can help America's renewal continue -- one acre at a time.
Take a ride with us -- you'll get a bird's eye view from the cockpit and see how advanced engineering can turns ideas into reality. Learn more about General Electric and the H80 Engine: http://invent.ge/Nn5myV
