Description: The Trent 900 70,000-76,500 pounds of thrust class engine is being developed to power all variants of Airbus A380 superjumbo commercial aircraft. It inherits the three-shaft design of the Trent family with enhanced reliability and scalability for optimized performance. Each individual compressor or turbine can be upgraded independently. Lower fuel consumption and operating costs. The Trent 900 engine program was launched in March 2003. The Trent 970 engine that will power Airbus A380-800 will enter service in 2006 and Trent 977 powering Airbus A380-800F freighter variant will enter service in 2008. The Trent 900 engine family has the potential of growing to 88,000-lb of thrust.

The Trent 977 engine rated at 76,500-lb of thrust will power the A380-800F freighter with a payload of 150 tons beginning in 2008. It has already been selected by Singapore Airlines, Qantas, Virgin Atlantic and Lufthansa totaling 48% of the orders and options. The first Trent 900 aero engine, the largest aero engine ever built by Rolls Royce, was unveiled along with the newest Airbus A380 at a special ceremony in Toulouse, France, on 18 January 2005. As of early 2005, SIA, Lufthansa, Malaysia Airlines, Qantas and Virgin Atlantic have selected Trent-powered A380s for a total of 80 firm and option orders representing a 50 percent of the market.
