Dépèche transmise le 15 juin 2009 par PRNewswire

HALLBERGMOOS, Germany and PARIS, June 15 /PRNewswire/ -- EUROJET Turbo GmbH, the leading European military engine consortium, is exhibiting the EJ200 engine at the Paris Air Show 2009. Visitors to the Eurofighter pavilion (opposite the EUROJET Chalet, no. A362-363) have the opportunity to view the advanced technology of the EJ200 engine, which powers the Eurofighter Typhoon. The display includes an interactive engine monitor offering a unique look inside the engine and a demonstration of how it operates.

EUROJET is contracted to produce more than 1,500 EJ200 engines to power a total of 707 Eurofighter Typhoon swing-role combat aircraft, ordered by six nations. More than 550 engines are already delivered to the customers. The Eurofighter Typhoon fleets, operated by the air forces of Germany, the UK, Italy, Spain and Austria, have amassed more than 120,000 engine flying hours. In addition, the first EJ200 production engine has achieved the significant milestone of 1,000 engine flying hours onboard a Royal Air Force (RAF) Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft. Achieved without the need for unscheduled overhaul, this accomplishment demonstrates the superior reliability of the EJ200, the next-generation power plant representing the very latest in cutting-edge technology, including advanced integrated health monitoring to deliver class-leading reliability, maintainability and through life cost.

Notes to Editors:

The EUROJET consortium is responsible for the management of the development, support and export functions of the new generation EJ200 engine system, installed in the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft. EUROJET's shareholders comprise Avio (Italy), ITP (Spain), MTU Aero Engines (Germany) and Rolls-Royce (UK). The EJ200 engine, with its unprecedented performance record combined with multi-role capability and highest availability at low life-cycle costs, is perfectly set to meet air forces' demands, today and in the future.
