Airbus’s latest aircraft, the A330neo will make its Farnborough Air Show debut powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 7000 engines, the engine manufacturer as announced. The visit comes as Rolls-Royce makes final preparations for the engine to enter into service, with formal certification to fly expected very shortly.
The A330neo enters service later this year and the Trent 7000 is the exclusive powerplant for the type.
“The team at Rolls-Royce is excited to see the A330neo arrive at Farnborough. The Trent 7000 brings together the latest technology from the Trent XWB and combines it with architecture from the Trent 1000 TEN and more than 50 million hours of flying experience from the Trent 700,” said Chris Cholerton, Rolls-Royce, President – Civil Aerospace.
The Trent 7000 is the seventh and latest member of the successful Rolls-Royce Trent engine family.
The 68-72,000lb thrust Trent 7000 benefits from a bypass ratio that is double that of its predecessor and will deliver a step change in performance and economics compared.
The Trent 7000 will improve specific fuel consumption by ten per cent, and will significantly reduce noise.
