|"Rolls-Royce bucks pension trend with surplus and better benefits"
"Rolls-Royce is boosting retirement benefits for 86,000 UK workers and pensioners, even as fellow blue-chip companies claim they have no option but to cut retirement promises which they say are now unpayable in full."
|"Rolls-Royce has taken a step forward in developing more powerful and efficient jet engines for commercial passenger aircraft with successful tests of a vital component for its UltraFan design."
|Thanks Standish - confirms my view that Rolls Royce is likely to gain more orders as Airbus rolls out improved planes with the emphasis on economic engines & passenger comforts.
More businesses & tourists want to fly rather than other forms of transport so the future is bright for the aerospace industry.|
|Airbus’s first A350-1000 remains on course for a maiden flight in the current quarter, as the test fleet nears completion.
The first A350-1000, MSN59, has been fitted with its Rolls-Royce Trent XWB-97 engines while the second aircraft, MSN65, is being equipped with a full passenger cabin.
Airbus has painted the second -1000 in the ‘carbon composite’ livery which it previously applied to the cabin-equipped A350-900 test aircraft MSN2.
The second A350-1000 will be used for cabin and air system tests, as well as early long flights and route proving next year, says the airframer.

|For those interested in engineering, a look at the Boeing 747-8.
|"Rolls-Royce got a boost on Monday after JPMorgan Cazenove upgraded its price target on the stock to 890p from 835p as it took a look at the UK aerospace and defence sector.
The bank said it was updating its earnings per share estimates, mostly for the recent strengthening of the dollar versus the pound from $1.30/£1 to $1.25/£1."
|Ticking along very nicely at the moment :-)|
|Qatar's current fleet of 30 787s are powered by GE so unlikely that they will change to RR for any additional Dreamliners. Rolls have opted out of the chance to power the single aisle 'planes.|
|Anyone know if the Boeing /Qatarii Airlines deal to be announced in the US tomorrow will include RR engines?|
|Potential reaction on Rolls-Royce (RR) to a supplier deal with a major player in the shipbuilding arena
|"Buy British to reap benefits of mini-nuclear power plants, Rolls-Royce tells ministers."
"Rolls-Royce is attempting to capitalise on the Government’s plans for a new industrial strategy with a bold appeal to ministers to choose British firms to develop new “mini-nuclear generators” in the UK.
The company heads what it says is the only British-led consortium in the Government’s £250m competition to develop small modular reactor (SMR) nuclear technology.
Ministers hope small nuclear plants, which are yet to be built anywhere in the world, will prove quicker and easier to finance and build than big reactors like Hinkley Point. "
|Production to commence on circa 70 RR powered UAV's for US navy, MQ-4C is development of the Global Hawk :
|Trent700 already fitted to existing HK A330 fleet. RR Also has exclusivity on A330 neo.|
|Fitted with which engine ? The A330-300 can take RR, P&W or GE|
|HK airlines confirms order for another 9 A330's.
Also worth noting that it already operates more A330's than A320's, double in fact.|
|Thanks Roger. Will look at those.|
BR700/710/725, AE3007, Tay... Also google RB282|
|There are certain engine sizes they need to start getting involved in. Executive jet engines for instance. We have turbo-prop Allison but need engines for the mass of Brazilian aircraft and the like. Hopefully one day, post Brexit, we can produce aircraft like Brazil, Sweden, France, Switzerland.....|
|Not hard to work that one out. Should be a buy depending on Markets next week.|
|Major new appointment.... strange day to announce it!
PS One wonders why he's leaving HS2...........|
|Thanks Roger - I know some who work in Derby & have plenty of overtime - completing orders.|
