100 - 200kN
The original record-breaker
The cleanest and quietest engine on the Boeing 757.
One of the most successful aero engines of its generation, the RB211-535E4 raised operators’ expectations for high reliability and unparalleled time on-wing.
The reliable and durable choice
The RB211-535E4 achieved the world record for on-wing life without removal, staying on wing for almost twice as long as any other engine on the airframe.
The record of over 40,000 hours over nine years in operation is equivalent to 18,000,000 miles flown, or 37 return trips to the moon. It also has the lowest combination of in-flight shutdown rate and shop visit rate in the airline industry, making it the go-to engine for powering the Boeing 757.
The RB211-535E4-powered Boeing 757 is the quietest airliner in its class, allowing it to power aircraft in and out of airports with strict local noise limits. The three-shaft architecture, first introduced on this engine, allows an engine to have fewer stages giving a shorter, stiffer structure, and allows the rotors to run to their optimum speeds, reducing the need for compressor variable guide vanes.
