Aug 21, 2017: The Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN, which will power all variants of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, has received full flight certification from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).
The Trent 1000 TEN (Thrust, Efficiency and New Technology) includes technologies from the Trent XWB and Advance engine programmes to deliver better thrust and efficiency as well as contributing to the Boeing 787 Dreamliner having half the noise footprint of previous-generation aircraft.
The Trent 1000 engine celebrated a hat trick of firsts whettttttttttn it powered the maiden flight of the Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner, having powered the first flights of the 787-8 and the 787-9. Recently the Trent 1000 TEN powered an 18 hour test flight during which a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner test aircraft drew a giant outline of the plane across the United States.
Dave Taylor, Rolls-Royce, chief engineer for Trent 1000, said, “This marks another critical step in our journey towards delivering additional capability and new technology for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. We would like to thank Boeing and EASA for their dedicated focus in helping us reach this goal and we look forward to the engine entering into service later this year.”
