New Rolls-Royce Pearl Engines designed for bizav introduced.

For the last several years, the ‘bloom was off’ the engines Rolls-Royce had designed for  business aviation. With several companies ditching the once largest supplier of engines to that aviation sector in favor of Pratt & Whitney and GE alternatives. But Rolls-Royce is back, according to  John Morris, reporting for Aviation Week Network about the news from EBACE 2018.

In development for several years, Rolls-Royce has introduced its Pearl Family of Engines, from its Advance2 technology program. The Pearl 15 has already won EASA certification and according to specifications has better thrust, fuel efficiency and noise reduction which augments its range capabilities as well; prompting Bombardier to select it for its new Global 5500 and 6500 large-cabin, very-long–range jets.
