Thrush Aircraft has exclusively teamed with General Electric to produce the new-generation Thrush 510G powered by the GE H80 turbine engine. The H80 provides increased temperature margins to enhance hot-day takeoff performance and high-altitude cruise speeds. And like all Thrush aircraft, the 510G delivers plenty of thrust for full payload performance – without sacrificing one bit of its amazingly agile handling. GE chose Thrush to launch this unprecedented new engine because of our proven expertise in building the world’s most dependable agricultural aircraft. You should choose the 510G for exactly the same reason.
