Boeing 787 will roll out with two next generation Rolls-Royce Trent 1000 engines.The Trent 1000 is on track for certification and has started its last required test. It has successfully completed the fan blade containment and all bird ingestion tests. Development testing has validated the full range of thrust capability required by the 787 family. Other testing has involved high temperature running and cyclic endurance equivalent to thousands of normal in-service hours. Key certification requirements met are the 150-hour engine type test and the FAA 1,000 cycle initial maintenance interval test.
