Rolls-Royce receives Civil Certifications for turbine engines to support Chinese general aviation market

Rolls-Royce has received certifications from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) for various models of the M250 turboprop and turboshaft engines as well as the RR300 helicopter engine.

Rolls-Royce now has 16 light turboshaft and turboprop engines certified by CAAC for operation in China, as the general aviation market is poised for rapid near-term growth.

Jim Payton, Rolls-Royce, Vice President - Helicopters, North Asia, "We are pleased to receive these new M250 and RR300 certifications as we position our business for this evolving general aviation market. We are discussing our M250 product family with several rotorcraft and fixed wing customers in China as our reputation for designing and manufacturing reliable, proven general aviation engines continues to grow."

He added, "The China market will experience significant growth over the next few years. These CAAC certifications will position our civil and light helicopter products well as we prepare for potential growth opportunities."

The M250 products receiving certifications are four variants of the M250-B17 turboprop engine, including those powering the Extra EA-500; Grob G120-TP; and the GippsAero GA-10 fixed-wing aircraft. On the rotorcraft side, certification was received for a growth variant for the M250-C47B, which incorporates the new Rolls-Royce VIP upgrade kit to improve power and fuel efficiency. The RR300 turboshaft engine also received certification and powers the Robinson R66 and the Scott's-Bell 47 light helicopters.

Of the more than 30,000 M250 and RR300 engines produced to date, over 16,000 are currently in operation and supported by a world-class network of company owned and independent service centers.
