PENTAGON - Rolls-Royce has launched a unique new range of apps, designed specifically for customer airline pilots, to give them a better insight into their engines. The Pilot App enables pilots and their airlines to save fuel and lower emissions by helping pilots optimise the performance of their engines.

The first apps available cover the Trent XWB, which powers the Airbus A350XWB and the Trent 1000 which powers the Boeing 787 Dreamliner. Both aircraft manufacturers have supported the app development program. Further apps for the Trent 900, Trent 700 and Trent 7000 will follow in the coming months.

Key features include information relating to oil consumption, operating engines in a variety of environmental conditions and managing derate. The apps are designed for tablet devices with Android, iOS or Windows operating systems. They are being made available through Google Play, iTunes and Microsoft Store. Pilots will be requested to confirm their details with Rolls-Royce to enable use.

The app is launched as the Rolls-Royce powered fleet continues to grow. Rolls-Royce engines will power half the widebody aircraft in service by early in the next decade as the fleet grows from just under 4,000 engines in service today to around 8,000 by 2027.

DUBAI - Egyptian flag carrier EGYPTAIR will lease 15 new Airbus A320neo aircraft powered by CFM International's LEAP-1A engine from AerCap. The airline is scheduled to begin taking delivery shortly.

EGYPTAIR is a long-time CFM customer and currently operates a fleet of 29 CFM56-7B-powered Boeing Generation 737-800 aircraft.

The LEAP engine entered commercial service in August 2016 and is providing its more than 20 operators with a 15 percent improvement in fuel efficiency, with an equivalent reduction in CO2emissions; and lower noise and NOx emissions. To date, the fleet in service has logged nearly 200,000 engine flight cycles and 400,000 engine flight hours while maintaining CFM's industry-leading reliability.
