Expected benefits:

  • The new core forms a key part of the Rolls-Royce Advance and UltraFan® engine designs, both of which are central to our future engine strategy and technology programme

Main outcome:

  • The Advance3 demonstrator engine successfully ran for the first time on a Derby, UK testbed – performing as expected during the initial test
  • The engine will continue testing in Derby, with future tests gathering data on the performance of the engine across more than 2,800 parameters
