More engines going more places
Our civil aerospace business powers over 30 types of commercial aircraft, we have an enviable position in all sectors of the market – widebody, narrowbody and corporate and regional aircraft – and we support customers in nearly every country on the planet.
From helicopters and general aviation aircraft, to business jets and the world’s largest airliners, we offer the industry’s broadest range of engines. In fact, over 30,000 Rolls-Royce engines are currently in service with 650 airlines, freight operators and lessors and 4,000 corporate operators. At any given moment, around 400,000 people are flying in aircraft powered by Rolls-Royce engines, and every 2.5 seconds a Rolls-Royce powered aircraft is taking off or landing.
The Trent family of engines is one of our most impressive. Trent engines have 17,998 parts and contain around a third of the elements from the periodic table. Their blades are manufactured to be accurate to within ten microns – that’s ten times less than the width of a human hair – and they can travel seven million miles between major services. Altogether our Trent engines have covered over 15,000 million miles – the equivalent of making 80 trips to the sun and back.
