Our Take – Rolls Royce: Rolls-Royce announces successful first tests of UltraFan technology demonstrator in Derby, UK

UltraFan has been in development for more than a decade and arrives as Rolls’ original assumptions never materialized: An eventual A350neo and a spot on Boeing’s NMA. In an interview with TAC in July 2022, outgoing Rolls CEO Warren East said the company would “pause that engine program” after its initial runs and its advanced attributes would become an organ donor for the Trent XWB and 1000. All this comes as Tufan Erginbilgic, its new CEO, tries the save the business from itself. -J.O.
