ABSTRACT
The article presents information on Trent 1000 engine, which is being developed by Rolls-Royce Motor Car Ltd. It states that in many ways the Trent 1000 is today's most significant civil aerospace project, the first of a new breed of engine that arguably represents the future of air travel. The author points out that aircraft manufacturers have come under pressure to reconcile the demands of viability and sustainability. According to the author, the giant airframe of the Airbus A380 will no doubt be breathtaking in sheer bulk, if not in technological refinement. The alternative is the much smaller and more flexible aircraft, the Boeing 7E7.
