Rolls-Royce Achieves 10 Million Flying Hours on its BR710 Engine

(PresseBox) ( Blankenfelde-Mahlow, )
The Rolls-Royce BR710 engine, which first flew in 1995, recently achieved an incredible milestone by reaching 10 million hours of service in flight. The engine, which powers a whole generation of business jets, such as the Bombardier Global 5000 and 6000 and the Gulfstream GV and G550, combines excellent reliability and fuel efficiency, making it the leading powerplant in this market.

Over the past two decades, the engine, the first member of the successful BR700 family, has achieved numerous records for speed and range, cementing its position as the engine of choice for long range business jets. There are over 3,200 BR710 engines in service today, over 70% of which are supported by Rolls-Royce’s market leading CorporateCare®.
