Spokesman: GE Aviation ends development of alternative F-35 Joint Strike Fighter engine | The Washington Post

CINCINNATI — GE Aviation has abandoned efforts to use its own funding to keep alive development of its alternate engine for the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter, a spokesman said Friday, effectively ending the project.

The unit of the General Electric Co. has decided its offer to pay for continued development didn’t make business sense, spokesman Rick Kennedy said. Because of increased commercial business at the unit, based in the northern Cincinnati suburb of Evendale, there was no immediate job loss, he said.
