Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, today congratulated Gulfstream on its Gulfstream V (GV) aircraft family achieving one million flying hours. The Rolls-Royce BR710 powers the GV, GV-SP, G500 and G550.

This year also marks the 15th anniversary of the BR710's entry-into-service. More than 1,750 BR710 engines are currently in service and have accumulated more than 4 million flying hours across a range of business jet applications. The engine has established the lowest specific fuel consumption (SFC) levels in its thrust class.

Scott Shannon, Rolls-Royce, Executive Vice President, Customer Business - Civil Small and Medium Engines, said: "We congratulate Gulfstream on this milestone for the GV family, the first aircraft to be powered by our BR710 engine. The GV has delivered outstanding performance and reliability and we are proud to have played our part in its success."

The BR710 offers low noise and excellent emission characteristics, ensuring unrestricted access to airports around the world. The excellent climb performance of the BR710 allows aircraft to reach cruise level faster than commercial airliners, again saving both fuel and time.

The BR710 is a member of the reliable and proven BR700 family of engines which has achieved more than more than 12 million flying hours.
