  • OPINION: Why Airbus still has a widebody race to run

    News | 06 Oct 2014 09:42

    ​It has been a good summer for Airbus. Farnborough in July saw the launch of the A330neo, and the last days of a balmy September the first flight of the A320neo and certification of the A350-900. Although the A350 will enter service over two years later than the mid-2012 target promised when Airbus relaunched the twinjet as the “Xtra Wide Body” or XWB in July 2006, the ­programme has been a triumph for Toulouse.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/OPINION-Why-Airbus-still-has-a-widebody-race-to-run-404470/

  • ANALYSIS: Rolls-Royce makes progress with Trent 7000

    News | 02 Oct 2014 09:45 | Murdo Morrison

    Although understandably coy before Airbus’s Farnborough announcement that it was launching the A330neo, Rolls-Royce was by July quite far along the path of finalising the design for the Trent 7000, the 72,000lb (320kN) thrust engine that will exclusively power the re-engined widebody. Airbus already has a more than 50% share of engines on in-service A330s, with its original Trent 700.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Rolls-Royce-makes-progress-with-Trent-7000-404039/

    ​As Rolls-Royce prepares to build and begin testing next year its seventh member of the Trent family – the 7000 for the Airbus A330neo – it is harvesting the fruits of a decade’s worth of research and development projects into two studies that could form the basis for a new generation of widebody – and even possibly narrowbody – engines in the 2020s.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Rolls-Royce-harvests-a-decade-of-research-for-new-engine-projects-404038/
