Solving challenges takes more than big thinking. Our concept for the future of aero-engines draws on over 100 million hours of Trent expertise, clear insight into our customers’ needs and the ability to predict trends. Brought together, these allow us to engineer solutions that transform the challenges facing the industry into opportunities to do things better.
It’s by embracing this opportunity that we’re shaping the future of flight, and that’s why we’ve developed our solution in two parts: Advance and UltraFan, predicted for launch in 2020 and 2025. Evolving our unique three-shaft engine architecture and combining this with a wealth of technological improvements, the high efficiency core compression and turbine system incorporated into Advance will deliver the highest overall pressure ratio of any commercial turbofan engine ever-made. The result? Greater efficiency, and lower CO2 emissions.
UltraFan takes the evolution of Advance further, featuring all the same technology and more to enable us to deliver a step-change increase in bypass ratio. This will deliver further fuel efficiency and CO2 reductions, and provide a further significant reduction in engine noise.
