Rolls-Royce (Booth X115) is ramping up production of its new Pearl 15 engine and the first sets of production-standard powerplants have been delivered to Bombardier for installation on the launch platforms, the Bombardier Global 5500 and 6500, the engine OEM announced on Monday at EBACE 2019.
The Pearl 15, first in a new line of powerplants from the UK-based engine manufacturer, was designed and optimized in partnership with Bombardier to power both of the new Global models, which were unveiled at last year's EBACE show. The two large-cabin, long-range jets share the same type certificate.
Manufactured at the Rolls-Royce site in Dahlewitz, Germany...
