Major milestone for Derby’s Rolls-Royce as new engine receives full flight certification

The Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN, that can power all variants of your Boeing 787 Dreamliner, has become granted full flight certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). This important milestone comes as the first number of passenger engines are provided for the Boeing facilities in Seattle, ready for entry into service later in 2010.

The Trent 1000 TEN (Thrust, Efficiency and New Technology) incorporates technologies with the Trent XWB and Advance engine programmes to generate improved thrust and efficiency and also leading to the Boeing 787 Dreamliner having half the noise footprint of previous-generation aircraft.

Earlier in 2010 the Trent 1000 engine celebrated a hat trick of firsts whenever it powered the first flight of your Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner, having powered the very first flights of your 787-8 along with the 787-9. More recently the Trent 1000 TEN powered an 18 hour test flight in which a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner test aircraft drew an enormous outline with the plane over the Usa.

Dave Taylor, Rolls-Royce, Chief Engineer for Trent 1000, said: “This marks decision concerning part in our journey towards delivering additional capability and new technology for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. We wish to thank Boeing and EASA with regard to their dedicated concentrate helping us reach this goal so we look forward to the engine getting in service later this holiday season.”
