Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has delivered the 31,000th M250 engine to Enstrom Helicopter Corporation for installation in a 480B training helicopter destined for the Japan Ground Self Defense Force.
The Rolls-Royce M250 engine line has amassed an impressive 223 million flight hours over the past 50 years of operation and has been continuously updated through a series of innovative design improvements during the lifetime of the program. The M250 engine continues to be installed on new applications, including the latest variant – the M250-C47E – on the US Navy’s Northrop GrummanMQ-8C Fire Scout.
Greg Fedele, Rolls-Royce, Senior Vice President – Helicopters, said, “The Rolls-Royce M250 engine line has compiled an unmatched record of success over the years. But we haven’t just rested on those laurels. Rolls-Royce continues to roll out improvements that will reduce operational costs while delivering the outstanding power and performance customers expect from their engines. We are proud to hit this significant milestone and look forward to delivering thousands more.”
Jerry Mullins, Enstrom Helicopter, Chief Executive Officer, said, “We are pleased to accept delivery of this 31,000th M250 engine from Rolls-Royce. The M250 has the power and performance required by our Enstrom 480B customers and offers outstanding value.”
The engine was delivered to Enstrom at a ceremony Feb. 22 at Rolls-Royce in Indianapolis, following completion on the Small Engine Assembly Line.
