About the Rolls Royce Ultra Fan engine

Rolls-Royce has begun the process of building the world’s largest aero-engine, UltraFan, which will be revolutionary when it comes to sustainable air travel in the future. The UltraFan is currently being manufactured in Derby, and aims to be completed by the end of this year.

This new engine will form the basis of a new family of UltraFan engines which will be capable of powering multiple types of aircraft, whilst also offering a 25% fuel efficiency improvement compared with previous models. This sustainability will be crucial in the aviation industry’s goal to see greater sustainability.
