Chris Tyler (Montgomery parent of Topher) from General Electric Aviation spoke to the students about, “How a jet engine works.” His PowerPoint presentation was an excellent illustration of the impact General Electric has on our community, the United States, and the world. Students were surprised to discover that, “every 2 seconds an aircraft with GE engine technology* is taking off somewhere in the world.” General Electric employs 77,000 people in 79 manufacturing and 11 engineering sites.
