Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has delivered the first two production M250 engines to Grob for its new G120TP trainer aircraft and is on course to deliver another 12 engines by the end of 2012.

The G120TP high-performance, fixed-wing trainer is powered by a single M250-B17F turboprop engine. The M250 provides 450 shp and enables the aircraft to travel at 280 mph, and reach up to 6 G's.

The launch customer for the G120TP is the Indonesian Air Force, which will receive 18 aircraft. Additional customers have also expressed strong interest in the aircraft.

Greg Fedele, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President, said, "Rolls-Royce is proud to power this new and capable trainer from Grob. The G120TP is a remarkable aircraft with very impressive flight characteristics, and will provide incredible value to any customer."
