Rolls-Royce, Delta Pen First SelectCare Contract for Trent Engines

Rolls-Royce and Delta Air Lines have entered into the first ever SelectCare services agreement for Trent engines, covering the Trent 800 powering the U.S. carrier’s fleet of Boeing 777 aircraft.

Following the debut of ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) on CFM’s LEAP engine, other manufacturers are boosting research into the new material.

GE is expected to build on LEAP development lessons to incorporate CMCs into new widebody engines such as the GE9X, while Rolls-Royce has just directed $30 million to its composites research facility in Cypress, California.

The British OEM has been at the site since its purchase of Hyper-Therm High-Temperature Composites in 2013, and will now turn it into a 62,000sq-ft facility dedicated to ceramic matrix composite (CMC) materials and processes for use in next-generation aircraft engine components.

N3 Engine Overhaul Services (N3), the Rolls-Royce and Lufthansa Technik joint venture, has been granted Part-145 authorization by German regulator The Federal Aviation Office (LBA) to become a repair center for the Trent XWB engine powering the A350 aircraft.

Asking companies how Britain’s exit from the European Union might affect them is a little like asking someone to predict a sculpture after only the first chisel-blow.

No-one knows what deal the United Kingdom will strike with Europe, how long it will take to flesh out the details, or when the country will trigger the start of the exit process.

However, some effects have already been noticed and others are easy to predict.
