  • Shares a common core with the AE engine family

  • Currently in service with the United States Marine Corps (MV-22) and United States Air Force (CV-22)

  • Battle-proven, robust, state-of-the-art turbine architecture capable of meeting the needs of future medium and heavy lift platforms

  • Marine derivative, MT7, selected to power the US Navy’s Ship to Shore Connector

The AE 1107 is a state-of-the-art, 7,000 shp, commercial engine. Having received FAA certification in 1998, the AE 1107 provides power for the Bell-Boeing V-22 Osprey tilt-rotor transport. When installed in the V-22, the AE 1107C-Liberty engines are housed in wing-tip, tilting nacelles with bottom-mounted accessories for easy access.

Rolls-Royce has delivered more than 700 AE 1107 turboshaft engines. The AE engine family is in production with a well-established supply chain and parts repair network with various locations around the world.

The AE 1107's two-shaft axial compressor design consists of a 14-stage compressor followed by an effusion-cooled annular combustor, a two-stage high pressure turbine and a two-stage low pressure turbine. The engine features six rows of variable compressor vanes, dual Full Authority Digital Engine Controls (FADECs), a self-contained oil system that allows for vertical operation, modular construction, and an 'on-condition' maintenance capability.
