The GE9X engine has been certified by the USA’s Federal Aviation Administration and the first engines have been delivered, to Boeing for use in its twin-engine Boeing 777X test aircraft.

The FAR (Federal Aviation Regulation) Part 33 certification involved eight test engines. GE Aviation engineers subjected the GE9X test engines to just under 5,000 hours and 8,000 cycles to achieve the certification.
