An engine completed more than 50,000 flying hours without requiring an overhaul - it is worth to celebrate! So did Rolls-Royce and Aeroflot, for this incredible Trent 700 engines new record for an engine in service.

What means 50,000 flying hours without requiring an overhaul?

That’s the equivalent of:

  • Travelling around the world more than 1,000 times
  • The engine running non-stop for more than five years
  • 2,000 services for a typical family car for the equivalent amount of miles 
  • Travelling to the moon and back 50 times

The engine first entered service in 2008 and is still going strong today, powering an Airbus A330 aircraft. 

It is part of a Trent engine family of seven variants that has now completed more than 125 million engine flying hours since the very first engine, a Trent 700, went into service in 1995. The latest version, the Trent 7000, entered service last November.

Andrey Panov, Aeroflot, Deputy CEO for Strategy and Marketing, said: “We are very pleased with the reliability of the Trent 700 overall and this engine in particular. We’ve worked closely with Rolls-Royce to continually monitor the engine to make sure it has been in good condition and it has provided an outstanding level of reliability for us.”

Dominic Horwood, Rolls-Royce, Chief Customer Officer – Civil Aerospace, said: “It is great to have Aeroflot with us at Paris Air Show to mark this achievement. This is the Power of Trent in action, and this milestone is a testament to the performance of both this Trent engine and the whole fleet. We look forward to continuing to support this engine as it continues in service.”
