FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
More power per pound of engine than any other production turboshaft is produced by General Electric's CT58 gas turbine which powers San Francisco & Oakland Helicopter Airlines' new Sikorsky S-62 turbocopter.

Two of the same 1000 horsepower engines, weighing only 299 pounds each, two weeks ago powered a Navy HSS-2 turbocopter to a new world's speed record of over 190 miles per hour.
