Users of Rolls-Royce-powered Boeing airliners are to get faster access to performance data following the launch of a new health monitoring service by the two organisations.

Data from an aircraft and its powerplants will be available on a single system. Airlines that operate both Boeing Airplane Health Monitoring and Rolls-Royce Engine Health Monitoring will be able to use one system to access data from the other.

The service, which the companies say will improve operational efficiency, will initially be available from July 2011 for operators of the Boeing 777/Rolls-Royce Trent 800 combination. The service will be extended to the Boeing 787/Trent 1000 combination and, by the end of 2011, to the Boeing 747/RB211-524 and Boeing 757/RB211-535.
