Phenix Solutions’ engineering team evaluated several aircraft engine OEM’s before selecting Rolls-Royce.
Phenix Solutions has selected the Rolls-Royce RR300 gas turbine engine to power the Ultra 2XL Co-Axial Heavy Lift UAS.
Phenix Solutions' engineering team evaluated several aircraft engine OEM's before selecting Rolls-Royce. The extensive history and proven track record of Rolls-Royce coupled with the high pedigree of the RR300 made the selection easy; the engine has nearly two decades of operation in the civilian aerospace industry and has exceeded over 1.6 million flight hours.
Phenix Solutions president and ceo Brian Riese says: “The selection of Rolls Royce for the Ultra 2XL required input from our engineering and certification teams, but most importantly, our customers. All parties agreed RR300 was the clear choice. Our engineers liked the standard 300HP available for multi-mission capacity, our aircraft certification team recognized the value of part 33 Certified Engine brought to our certification efforts and our customers herald the decision based on the well documented safety record, reliability, and superior customer support system Rolls-Royce offers."
Phenix believes that operators of other aircraft using the RR300 will see an easy addition to, or transition from their current crewed aircraft to the uncrewed Ultra 2XL. The Ultra 2XL with the RR300 will allow companies to utilize current staff without additional training on a new and highly unique engine resulting in massive savings for the Phenix customer base.
