Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN powers Boeing 787 for first time and selected to power first flight of 787-10

The Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 TEN has powered a Boeing 787 Dreamliner flight for the first time. The flight, which took off and landed at Boeing Field, Seattle, Washington, US, marks the latest phase in the engine's development programme.

The Trent 1000 TEN has also been selected to power the first test flight of the Boeing 787-10 version of the Dreamliner next year. This means the Trent 1000 will have powered the first flight of every version of the 787.

Trent 1000 Programme Director Gary Moore said: "Our first Trent 1000 TEN flight on the 787 Dreamliner is another great milestone for our programme. I want to thank everyone at Boeing and Rolls-Royce who have worked hard to make this flight happen. In addition, our selection to power the first flight of the 787-10 is a great honour, and reflects our commitment to supporting this aircraft as it continues to evolve."

The Trent 1000 TEN has already powered tests earlier this year on the Rolls-Royce Flying Test Bed aircraft, a Boeing 747, at Tucson, Arizona, US.

The Trent 1000 TEN (Thrust, Efficiency and New Technology) will power all variants of the Boeing 787 Dreamliner family. The engine draws on technologies from the Rolls-Royce Trent XWB engine and Advance engine programme, delivering thrust and efficiency improvements.

The Trent 1000 powered the first 787-8 entry into service in 2011 and the first 787-9 into service in 2014.
