Rolls Royce recently announced its plans to start operating a Jet Engine testbed at Alliance Airport in Fort Worth, Texas. Rolls-Royce will be taking over the 444,00 square ft. test facility, formally owned by Texas Aero Engine Services LLC. The testing facility was purchased with intent to test run all Rolls-Royce Trent Engines, which will allow for further support of its growing fleet. Rolls Royce is currently in the process of unveiling three new huge civil aero engines into service.
The Trent 1000 Ten just went into service during November of last year. The Trent currently powers Boeing’s 787 Dreamliner aircraft, and is 20 percent more efficient than Boeing’s previous operating system. The Trent is highly reliable, lowers fuel burn speed, is one of the quietest engines to date, and has an all-electric architecture. Boeing couldn’t think of a better choice to run its 787 Dreamliner.
Rolls Royce will be launching its Trent XWB-97 and its Trent 7000 this year on the Airbus A350-1000 and Airbus A330neo. Rolls Royce projects that by 2020 one in every two modern widebody passenger aircrafts will be powered by a Trent engine.
The addition of this facility will help Rolls Royce improve their overall global network and allow them to collect valuable data on their latest engine programs. Rolls Royce also just opened a new test facility in Derby United Kingdom, which further sows their commitment to support the large number of engine parts that will be produced over the next few years. By purchasing these two facilities and collecting extensive data, Rolls Royce has truly shown its commitment to making their engines some of the best in the world.
In November of 2017, CFM International signed a huge deal with the company Gulf Air. Gulf Air bought fifty-eight engines from CFM International, ranging in price and scale. The total cost of the agreement was over $1.9 billion dollars, placing Gulf Air on the map as a powerhouse of an airline company. The deal supplied parts for their Airbus fleets and gave them a few extra engines for future use. Not only did the deal supply Gulf Air with the parts, there was also a long-term deal written into the order.
This deal will last through the next ten years and states that CFM International will vow one dollar on every engine on a flight per hour basis. The two companies have been working together since 1992 and Gulf Air has acquired a huge fleet powered by CFM International engines. As Gulf Air continues to strike deals with other companies, and grow its fleet ten-fold, they are slowly securing their foot-hold in the world of aviation. These deals show that Gulf Air is not afraid to change, adapt and grow with the times.
The Chief Executive Officer of Gulf Air commented on the friendship that had been forged over decades with CFM International. He stated how proud he was to make this connection even stronger with this new deal. He also commented on the quality that CFM always provides, stating their engines parts were a clear choice for them because they knew that the company was reliable. CFM Internationals president and CEO also commented on the deal, stating his love and support for Gulf Air as a company and partner.
It seems these two companies have created a beautiful friendship and we should expect many more deals to be exchanged between the two companies as the years go on.
