AE 3007

  • Thrust range up to 8,600lbf

  • Over 2,200 engines in service

The AE 3007 turbofan core is derived from the AE 1107C-Liberty engine and is in the 8,000lbf thrust class. The engine was developed to create a turbofan member of the AE common core family for the growing regional jet and medium/large business jet markets, but has subsequently been developed as a growth version for military aircraft applications.

A single AE 3007H engine powers the Northrop Grumman Global Hawk, a high-altitude, unmanned aircraft. The AE 3007H provides the fuel efficiency required, as well as the electrical power necessary to fly surveillance missions up to 30 hours at altitudes over 11 miles high. The system has already proven itself over the skies of Afghanistan and Iraq. The Northrop Grumman Triton is also powered by a single Rolls-Royce AE 3007H engine.

Two AE 3007A1P engines power the Embraer 145 Special Version aircraft used for intelligence, reconnaissance and surveillance missions.

The AE 3007 turbofan engine is a high bypass, two shaft engine featuring a wide-chord single-stage low pressure (LP) compressor, 14-stage high pressure (HP) compressor followed by an effusion-cooled annular combustor, two stage high pressure (HP) turbine and a three stage low pressure (LP) turbine.
