Rolls-Royce will Supply Trent 700 Engines to Singapore Airlines

Rolls-Royce Wins $1BN Order From Singapore Airlines

Rolls-Royce, the global power systems company, has won a $1bn order from Singapore Airlines to supply Trent 700 engines to power 15 Airbus A330 aircraft, Along with TotalCare® services support.

 Singapore Airlines already operates 19 Trent 700-powered A330s, the first of which was delivered in 2009.

The Trent 700 is the most fuel efficient, cleanest and quietest engine on the A330. Since it entered service in 1995, Rolls-Royce has continued to improve its performance by incorporating advanced technology from the Trent 900 and Trent 1000. These enhancements have delivered a one per cent reduction in fuel consumption, which saves 800 tonnes of CO2 per aircraft, per year.

Nick Devall, Rolls-Royce, Chief Commercial Officer – Civil Aerospace, said: “The Trent 700 has proven itself to be the most efficient engine for the Airbus A330. Our continuous investment in the improvement of our products has ensured that the Trent 700 is the clear leader in the market. Singapore Airlines has been a great partner and we are delighted to extend this relationship further.”

The Trent 700, the only engine designed specifically for the A330, has won more than 75 per cent of orders in the last three years. More than 1,300 Trent 700 engines are now in service or on order.

Boeing: Airlines Need $4 trillion worth of New Aircraft by 2030

Boeing: $4 Trillion in New Aircraft Needed

Airlines will need $4 trillion worth of new planes to meet a pickup in passenger numbers, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region.

Airlines will need 33,500 new jets from now through 2030, Boeing said in a statement.

The largest market will be for single-aisle jets seating between 90 and 240 passengers, with most the growth in the booming Asia Pacific region.

The planemaker says it raised its forecast after passenger air traffic rose 8 percent in 2010, after declining about 2 percent in 2009 when much of the world was experiencing a deep recession.

Boeing announced that it will ramp up production of the next-generation B737, its most popular jet.

Boeing is the biggest maker of commercial planes is a $32 billion business with 65,000 employees worldwide after Airbus, based on 2010 deliveries. Airbus delivered 510 commercial planes last year, compared with 462 for Boeing.

Best xbox Flight Game: Ace Combat 6

Posted by AME on Saturday , under | comments (0)

Ace Combat 6: Fires of Liberation (Xbox 360)
The landscapes are absolutely stunning.

Ace Combat 6 takes place in a fictional world, although aside from geography and nomenclature, it might as well be our own. The Emmerian good guys seemingly represent the Western world, complete with green-lawned suburban homes, whereas the enemy hails from USSR-inspired Estovakia (a comparison that is cemented in every time you hear an Emmerian refer to the residents at "Stovies").

 If you're a veteran and really want to feel like a top gun, you can grab the $150 package that includes flight sticks. The sticks work just fine and give you that great in-the-cockpit feel. But if you don't have the cash or are simply cautious about using a yoke and a joystick, don't worry: Your controller will get the job done serviceably.

Each mission features multiple operations, so expect things to get a little chaotic.

The missions themselves are quite exciting, though you may not get this impression from the first 5 or 6 of them, because the difficulty level slowly rises for the first few hours. In fact, until you reach the later stages of the game, crashing is your most serious threat.

Pros: great graphics (when not too close to the ground), intense gameplay

Cons: this may just be me, but the people in the narratives lips dont go with their words and that annoys me! ha

Summary: this is a really good game!! i loved it and have beaten it twice!! the first mission was really fun and fast paced!! although the 3-5 missions can kinda be moring and the desert canyon mission was a little tedious for me! ha but over all the game has ups and downs, and you really get into the game!! i know a couple of times i was really angry that i died!! ha but i thought, hum! this is a game why am i yelling at the tv?! ha lol but yes i would deffinatly recommend this game to anyone who loves fast paced adrinaly rushing games!!!

Pros: Online play, great controls and graphics, dynamic solo gameplay

Cons: Still missing AC5 great features, stock, predictable storyline.

Overall it's an excellent game and if you are an Ace Combat fan, it's a must have. If you have never played any of the games in the series but would like to, this is a good time to get into it, although I recommend you play Ace Combat 5 a few times first.
