The civil aerospace business is a major manufacturer of aero engines for all sectors of the airliner and corporate jet market. Rolls-Royce powers more than 30 types of commercial aircraft and has 12,500 engines in service with customers around the world. Demand for our products remains robust and underpins strong performance.
In the modern, widebody market, Rolls-Royce is the market leader. Each individual member of our Trent engine family (comprising the Trent XWB, Trent 1000, Trent 900, Trent 500, Trent 800 and Trent 700) has the distinction of being either the launch engine for the airframe for which it was designed, or being the market leader on that application. The Trent family builds on the success of the RB211-524 and RB211-535 engines.
Rolls-Royce and Pratt & Whitney have proposed a new joint venture to develop engines for future generation mid-size aircraft (120-230 passengers).
Rolls-Royce is a former shareholder in the consortium International Aero Engines (IAE) which produces the V2500 for the Airbus A320 family. Now, as a major supplier, Rolls-Royce continues to have a significant manufacturing, assembly and servicing commitment to the programme.
Corporate and regional
In the Corporate market, Rolls-Royce is the market leader and powers the fastest, the longest-range, and the largest business jets. In the past decade, our engines have powered seven new business jets into service, contributing to a total Rolls-Royce powered corporate fleet of more than 2,400 aircraft. Rolls-Royce holds more than a third of the regional market with the AE 3007 engines powering almost 1,000 Embraer aircraft.
