Rolls-Royce secures RotorWay International for RR300 engine

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has been selected to power the RotorWay Eagle 300T turbine twin-seat helicopter with RR300B1 engines. As part of this agreement, RR300 engines will be delivered to RotorWay International through 2017.

The RR300B1 is the second new model in the RR300 program, the fourth new release in the RR family of engines and one of six new civil engine programs Rolls-Royce has launched in 36 months. The engine's development program has progressed quickly since its 2007 launch, with production and deliveries commencing in 2008.

Key attributes of the RR300 include: low acquisition and operating costs; low-weight, compact design; improved specific fuel consumption; an embedded engine monitoring system; and ability to burn a variety of available jet fuels.

Ken Roberts, President of the Rolls-Royce Helicopter Engine business said: "We are pleased to be entering into this new partnership with RotorWay, which will enable them to expand on the range of popular piston-powered helicopters in their product portfolio. The selection of a gas turbine engine to power RotorWay's new, civil-certified Eagle 300T is an excellent opportunity for Rolls-Royce to demonstrate the power, versatility and benefits of the RR300 engine."
