Rolls-Royce say that for nearly three decades, their family of turbofan aircraft engines have continued to push the boundaries of what is possible, as each new model sets new performance benchmarks for civil aviation.
In total, Rolls-Royce civil aerospace engines have earned more than 100 million flying hours.
While popular among private jets – especially Gulfstream aircraft – Rolls-Royce also produce a variety of engines for commercial aircraft.
For example, members of the Trent engine family are now in service on the Airbus A330, A340, A350, and A380, as well as the Boeing 777 and 787 Dreamliner.
Today more than 3,300 business jet aircraft are in service worldwide, helping companies to improve business efficiency, productivity and enabling economic growth.
They offer the flexibility and connectivity required in a globalized world, fly heads of states around the globe, support humanitarian efforts, or connect families by making the world a smaller place.
Rolls-Royce engines enable airframers to offer the perfect combination of speed, range, size, efficiency, and reliability.
The following Rolls-Royce engines are those that power private jets – both past and present.

The engines that are currently bolted to these private jets date as far back as 1967 with the SPEY 511-8 engines powering the Gulfstream GII.
Since 1967, Rolls-Royce have been continuously developing their engines, making them lighter and more fuel efficient.
Generally speaking, Rolls-Royce develop engines for larger, heavier use aircraft. These aircraft are pushing the boundaries of how aircraft fly.
