The Luftwaffe German Air Force has taken delivery of the first of three Global 6000 business jets with which it will fulfill political and parliamentary transport requirements. The aircraft have a connection to the country as they are powered by BR710 engines, developed and manufactured at the Rolls-Royce Deutschland site in Dahlewitz. More than 3,400 engines of this type have been delivered to date, having achieved around 13 million flying hours. Later this year the German Air Force will receive the remaining two aircraft.

Rolls-Royce senior vice president customers, business aviation, Scott Shannon says: “We are delighted with the trust that the German Federal Ministry of Defence has placed in us. Our proven BR710 engines are already in service with the German Special Air Mission Wing powering its Bombardier Global 5000 fleet and demonstrating their reliability and efficiency on a daily basis. With the recently ordered Airbus A350 XWB aircraft nearly the whole fleet will be powered by Rolls-Royce engines; a success that makes us very proud and that is due to the outstanding performance of our engineers, our manufacturing and assembly workforce, as well as our service teams.”

Bombardier Aviation president David Coleal adds: “Our specialised aircraft team has built long-standing relationships with governments around the world who trust in the safety and performance of our products.”
