Congrats on the new adventure! I've only been to Indiana a time or two, but it was fun.

Home of the Purdue Boilermakers (and where Axl Rose was originally from; technically, Purdue is in West Lafayette).

I spent some time there--it's a good area (a bit more to do than most towns of similar size given that Purdue is close by).

I’ve heard about that place.
GE/CFM LEAP aircraft engines are sweet!

I did some training at the old GE CTAC training site in Cincinnati 15 years ago. Back then they were still building engines in Cincinnati.
I don’t think it’s still operating.
I run and maintain 10 GE cumbustion turbines at a peaking facility.
LM6000 is a light marine engine in the GE CF6 family of aircraft engines.
747-400 engine.


It should be a great job man.
It’s not rocket science, well... not quite:cool:
Congrats. Hope your move goes well.

It’s a new, purpose built facility. Opened in Sept ‘15. Would suggest getting a tour if you’re ever in the area.

Awesome Bender! Been meaning to ask how the job interview went. That looks like one hack of a hair dryer you will be making. ;)
