Rolls-Royce Trent 800

Developed from the RB211, the Trent covers a thrust range of 71,000 lb to 92,000 lb thrust, with the capability to grow beyond 100,000 lb. The Trent 800 features a 110 inch diameter wide-chord fan, high flow compressors and Full Authority Digital Engine Control (FADEC).
Detailed engineering design began in 1988 to meet the propulsion requirements of the Airbus A330 (Trent 700) and Boeing 777 (Trent 800). The Trent first ran in August 1990, and in January 1994 a Trent 800 demonstrated a world record thrust of 106,087 lb. The engine entered service in March 1995 in the Airbus A330.
