Rolls-Royce announced today the rollout of the 2000th BR710 engine at its Dahlewitz plant near Berlin in Germany.
Dr. Michael Haidinger, Managing Director and President Civil Small & Medium Engines, said: “The BR710 has seen global success with operators of business jets and has prevailed on the market owing to its reliability and efficiency. Aircraft equipped with this engine have set new performance records for range, speed and altitude. The success of the BR710 on the global market is attributable to the outstanding efforts of our engineers, assembly workforce and service team. They assure the success of the engine, today and in the future."
With thrust ratings between 14,750 and 15,500 pounds, the engine powers the Bombardier Global Express, Global Express XRS and Global 5000 as well as Gulfstream G500 and G550 business jets.
The BR710 engine is a member of the proven BR700 family, which also includes the BR715 and BR725 models. BR700 engines were the first engines manufactured in Germany to obtain international certification. More than 11 million hours in service attest to the success story of the BR700.
