Rolls Royce wants in on the Boeing "797"

Fri May 05, 2017 4:39 pm

Link/Source: https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles ... boeing-jet

"Rolls-Royce Holdings Plc will bid to power a new short-haul jetliner being designed by Boeing Co. as the U.K. engine maker seeks to re-enter a market it quit in 2011."

"Rolls is preparing a pitch to Boeing as the U.S. manufacturer works on the business case for a so-called middle-of-market plane, Chief Executive Officer Warren East said in comments after the company’s annual general meeting."

“The answer is that we are pursuing it,” East said Thursday at the shareholder gathering near its main manufacturing site in Derby, England." “It’s not ‘will we be pursuing it.’ We are pursuing it.” The engine would be available by 2025, when the Boeing jet is slated to enter service, he said."

Are there any renderings on what the "797" might look like.
What kind of thrust ratings is Rolls promising especially for airports like La Paz, ADD, BOG, MEX etc.....

Not surprising. I would think Rolls would be the most eager since they are shut out of the narrowbodies for the foreseeable future.
As we celebrate mediocrity, all the boys upstairs want to see, how much you'll pay for what you used to get for free.

... and, unfortunately, PW is doing a pretty good job of shutting itself out of future business too...

It seems at least CFM and RR are offering at this stage. Maybe PW has enough on its plate.

While all three may offer proposals to power the plane I doubt Boeing will select all three.
