The F414 Engine

For more than 25 years, the U.S. Navy has depended on F414 power. Today, the F414 continues to deliver in the most demanding combat missions.

F414-GE-400 engines provide today's combat-proven Boeing Super Hornet and Growler electronic attack with significant survivability and payload improvement compared to earlier weapon systems.


The F414-INS6 single-engine variant is in development for India’s Aeronautical defense Agency (ADA) to power the MKII version of the Tejas Light Combat Aircraft.


The F414-GE-39E powers Saab's Next Generation Gripen aircraft.


GE Aviation delivered the first F414-GE-400K engine in May 2020 to Korea Aerospace Industries Ltd (KAI) for South Korea’s next-generation indigenous fighter, known as the KF-X. Developed for the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF), the F414-powered KF-X will deliver significantly greater mission capability, extended combat radius and longer lifespan compared to current aircraft.


In August 2020, NASA took delivery of its first F414-GE-100 engine for NASA’s X-59 QueSST (short for Quiet SuperSonic Technology), an experimental piloted aircraft designed to fly faster than sound, cruise at 55,000 feet yet generate significantly less noise than previous supersonic aircraft.
