Rolls-Royce launches AE 3007C2 engine to power new Cessna Citation Ten

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, today launched the newest member of its highly successful AE 3007 family of engines – the AE 3007C2 – which will power Cessna's new Citation Ten, a new, larger version of the Citation X.

The AE 3007C2 is expected to be certificated in the first half of 2013 and enter service later in the same year. Engines are on schedule to support Cessna's first flight test, which is planned for late 2011.

Dr. Michael Haidinger, President Rolls-Royce Deutschland and COO Corporate & Regional Engines at Rolls-Royce said: "We are delighted to build on our strong partnership with Cessna. We have enhanced the already highly efficient and extremely successful AE 3007 platform. The AE 3007C2 utilises the latest advances in engine technology and performance to deliver increased thrust alongside reduced fuel consumption."

Cessna Chairman, President and CEO Jack Pelton said: "We've enjoyed a very successful relationship with Rolls-Royce, so we're excited to move to a new level together on the new Citation Ten."

Rolls-Royce is the world's leading engine supplier for business jets with a 36 per cent share of the market. The company powers 15 different in-service business jet types in a fleet of 2,400 aircraft.

This new 7,000lbf class two-shaft engine combines the latest technology with the proven reliability and superior performance of the AE 3007 family.

The AE 3007C2 sets a new performance standard for direct climb to altitude. Compared with the AE 3007C1, the AE 3007C2 delivers a 4 per cent increase in takeoff thrust, 6 to 10 per cent improvement in climb and cruise thrust and an additional 1.4 per cent improvement in engine specific fuel consumption (SFC).

The AE 3007C2 features a higher flow, more efficient fan with 38.5 inch compound swept fan blades. This advanced fan blade design is mechanically more durable and features improved stability. The engine cycle is further optimized by a larger LP turbine for durability and HP compressor vane schedule for efficiency. New FADEC software provides improved engine health monitoring and engine start logic enabling quick turn-around capability.

The AE 3007C2 is supported by the industry-leading Rolls-Royce CorporateCare® engine management and services programme.
