2019, November 4 - 10:47
Casey Ott, head of the company plant at Veresegyháza gave a presentation on the rapid development of the aviation industry, the most advanced engines and career opportunities in GE Aviation.

- Every second second a GE-powered aircraft takes off somewhere in the world and every six seconds a flight departs whose engine parts are repaired at the Veresegyháza plant, Casey Ott said in her presentation at the Engineering Faculty of the University of Debrecen (UD).

A  graduate of Stony Brook University, New York, and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cambridge, she demonstrated the evolution of the aviation industry over the last few decades from Boeing 787 and Airbus 380 to military CF6, CFM56, and CF3 to over a hundred engineering students including pilot training students.

- GE Aviation, GE’s Aviation Business, is the world’s leading manufacturer and service provider of jet and turboprop engines, which provides integrated systems for commercial, military, business and general aviation. The world’s largest commercial engine, GE 9X, which has lighter components, larger turbine blades and lower Nox emissions, is built by our company, Casey Ott underlined.

Introducing the aircraft engine parts repair shop in Veresegyháza opened in April 2000, the specialist explained that it supports airlines and primarily GE Aviation background plants, serving today more than 170 customers globally both in terms of honeycomb cells and composite parts.

Ever since its inception, GE Aviation business has been continuously increasing its revenues, and the number of its staff is currently over 400. Using welding, brazing, plasma spraying, heat treatment and machining processes, the plant also repairs the most advanced aircraft engines, including GEnx and GP7000 used by Boeing 787 and Airbus 380.

- Our supply chain covers 19 countries, with 31 thousand employees and 5 thousand suppliers, the American specialist explained to the students with regards to career opportunities.

Casey Ott is a keen supporter of GE Women’s Network, which aims to create a supportive environment that strives for gender equality at all levels of the company. She considers it important that now there are female division managers, designers, and engineers working at GE’s Aviation Plant at Veresegyháza.
