Rolls-Royce launches new engine family for business aviation

Rolls-Royce has launched Pearl, a new engine family for business aviation. The engine has been purpose-built and will be the sole engine for Bombardier’s latest business jets, the Global 5500 and the Global 6500 aircraft.

The new engine, which has been developed at Rolls-Royce’s Centre of Excellence for Business Aviation engines in Dahlewitz, Germany, has undergone a comprehensive test program and received EASA certification earlier this year.

The engine is currently undergoing flight tests at Bombardier’s Flight Test Centre in Wichita, Kansas, supporting the planned entry into service at the end of 2019.

David Coleal, president for Bombardier Business Aircraft, commented, “The Global 5500 and Global 6500 aircraft have the longest range, the largest cabins and the smoothest ride in their class, and we are very proud that they will be powered by the advanced and efficient Pearl engine, purpose-built for these aircraft by our longstanding partners at Rolls-Royce.”

Pearl is two decibels quieter than the Rolls-Royce BR700 engine and delivers 9% more thrust, meaning passengers can travel farther, faster and quieter. It also has a 7% improvement on fuel consumption and has lower emissions.

Chris Cholerton, president for civil aerospace at Rolls-Royce, said, “Our teams have worked hard behind the scenes to develop this new engine and we are proud, once again, to lead the way in business aviation. The Pearl engine is a pioneering product, bringing together the most eco-friendly and efficient technologies available today.”
