Rolls-Royce AE 3007A2 completes certification

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has received type certification from the Agência Nacional de Aviação Civil (ANAC) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for the latest member of the AE 3007 engine series, the AE 3007A2.

The 9,440 lbf thrust engine, which powers Embraer's new Legacy 650 large executive jet received U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification in April.

All engine development testing has been successfully completed and to date four engines have achieved over 300 flying hours and cycles on two flight test aircraft.

Dr. Michael Haidinger, President, Rolls-Royce Deutschland and Chief Operating Officer Corporate & Regional Engines Rolls-Royce, said: "This achievement highlights yet another successful on-time completion of a Rolls-Royce civil engine programme. We are looking forward to the AE 3007A2-powered Legacy 650 entering service later this year."

Compared with its predecessor, the AE 3007A2 provides 6 to12 per cent higher take-off and climb, thrust and reduced specific fuel consumption, providing a significant contribution towards the Legacy 650 extended range of 3,900 nm (7,223 km). The combination of an advanced wide-chord fan and updated software optimizes engine fuel consumption for long range cruise.

The AE 3007A2 engine is developed, assembled and produced at the Rolls-Royce manufacturing facility in Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. The first production engine was delivered in April.
