Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, is celebrating the 25th anniversary of of the Tay 611-8 engine's entry into service. The engine entered service in 1987 on the Gulfstream GIV and also powers the G350 and G450.

Nearly 600 Tay 611-8/-8C-powered aircraft are in service and the engine continues to offer low noise and emissions and excellent fuel efficiency.

Dr. Michael Haidinger, President, Rolls-Royce Deutschland and President, Civil Small & Medium Engines, said: "This milestone is part of the continuing success of the Tay engine family, which has now accumulated more than 30 million engine hours with 1,900 engines in service."

In 2011, the Tay 611-8C received Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) certification for CAEP6 nitrogen oxide (NOX) emissions compliance, which comes into force in January 2013. Earlier in 2011, a Tay 611-8C-powered Gulfstream G450 became the world's first business jet to be powered by biofuel.
