The Trent 800 entered service in April 1996. Built on the solid foundation of Trent 700 (entered service in March 1995) experience, the Trent 800 was certified ahead of schedule at 90,000 lb thrust, exceeding its original target of 84,000lb.
The Trent 800 rapidly established a reputation for industry-leading reliability and the capability of the original design has been demonstrated by continuing thrust growth. Today the Trent 800 is available from 75,000 to 95,000lb thrust with a common engine standard, the widest range of any engine in its class.
Today the Trent 800 is the power plant of choice for the 777, having secured orders for 41 per cent of the available market.
