  • 06-Feb-2009 02:55 EST
Rolls-Royce selected Parker Aerospace as its partner on the Trent XWB engine program. Parker estimates that the agreement will generate approximately $2.5 billion in revenues over the life of the program. Product design, manufacture, and support will be completed by multiple Parker Aerospace divisions, including the Air & Fuel Division and Customer Support Operations in Irvine, CA; Nichols Airborne Division in Devens, MS; and Stratoflex Products Division in Fort Worth, TX. The first Parker-supplied Trent XWB components are scheduled for delivery to Rolls-Royce in late 2009. Initial ground testing of the Trent XWB is due to commence in 2010, with maiden flight on the new Airbus twinjet scheduled for 2012.
