The Trent 500 provides reliable, economic power for the Airbus A340, with excellent in-service margins, leading to longer time on-wing and competitive maintenance costs.
With its design derived from the reliable RB211 family of three-shaft engines, the Trent 500's advanced layout provides lighter weight, better payload/range and more revenue-earning potential than its competitors.
Its diffusion bonded/superplastically formed (DB/SPF) wide-chord fan protects the engine against foreign object damage while latest generation single crystal high-pressure turbine blades help to ensure that engines have the best on-wing life in the airline industry.
The combustor produces the lowest flight pollution levels and the engines are designed for low noise, making them kinder to the environment.
