The BR710 is part of the BR700 family of engines, powering special mission aircraft, business jets and regional airliners worldwide.
The BR710 is a two-shaft, high-bypass-ratio engine with a one-stage low pressure (LP) compressor and ten-stage high pressure (HP) compressor, driven by a two-stage HP turbine and two-stage LP turbine respectively. The engine features a single low emissions annular combustor with 20 burners.
The BR710 is part of the BR700 family to which the BR715 for RegionalJet application also belongs. Both engine family members use the highly efficient BR700 engine core, suitable for high cyclic operation with thrusts between 14,000lbf and 23,000lbf. All stages are optimised to keep noise and emissions to a minimum.
The BR710 outstanding performance allows operations from hot and/or high airports, whilst its fuel efficiency support very long mission durations or long-distance flights at high altitudes.
The BR710 family powers a range of special mission aircraft developed on either the Bombardier or Gulfstream business jet platform.
In addition an increasing number of governments are selecting Bombardier or Gulfstream aircraft for VIP and Head-of-State missions and therefore benefit from the outstanding reliability and performance.
The BR710 engine made its first run in 1994, right on schedule. Its first flight - powering the new Gulfstream V (G550) - was in November 1995. Certification was in August 1996, again right on schedule. The first flight of the Bombardier Global Express took place in October 1996 followed by its specific BR710 engine certification in January 1997.
Due to their outstanding performance, BR710 powered aircraft have established many world records in the field of speed, altitude and range. Long life on wing, low fuel burn and excellent environmental performance contribute to low operating costs with maximum reliability.
