I think E

A. tested that could eventually propel aircraft anywhere in the world within two hours or help - wrong placement of adverb
B. tested that could eventually have the capability of propelling aircraft anywhere in the world within two hours or to help
C. tested, eventually able to propel aircraft anywhere in the world within two hours, or helping
D. tested, and it eventually could propel aircraft anywhere in the world within two hours or helping
E. tested, and it could eventually have the capability to propel aircraft anywhere in the world within two hours or help. - correct use of infinitives

E for me.
Jet engine will not propel, its 'capability' will propel.

IMO A) Please post OA.

A) It requires essential phrase because "aircraft" requires essential description for sentence to follow.
B) wrong - could + have the capability is wordy and not idiomatic.
C) wrong - unidiomatic.
D) wrong - eventually could - wrong.
E) wrong - could + have the capability
