The Rolls-Royce BR725 engine has reached one million flying hours.
Powering the Gulfstream ultra-long-range G650 business aircraft family, the performance of the BR725 has enabled the G650ER and its sister aircraft G650 to fly faster and further than any other ultra-long range corporate aircraft before. Since entry into service in 2012, the aircraft has achieved more than 100 city pair records, among those the farthest, fastest flight in business aviation history from Singapore to Tucson, Arizona. There are more than 800 BR725 engines in service today, many supported by Rolls-Royce CorporateCare and CorporateCare Enhanced.
Programme director business aviation Nuno Taborda says: “Seeing the BR725 reach one million flying hours is an impressive milestone and we are very proud of this achievement. With one speed record after another broken by the G650, it sets the standard for performance in business aviation; you simply can't fly farther faster. All this comes with superb levels of availability and reliability, powering the BR725 into a class of its own.”
