    Rolls-Royce engine hits new milestone on legendary aircraft

    Rolls-Royce, the world-leading provider of power systems and services, has topped one million hours of service with its AE 2100 military turboprop engine, a new milestone for one of the world’s most famous aircraft – the C-130 Hercules military transport.
    Dennis Jarvi, President Defense North America for Rolls-Royce, said: "The AE 2100 engine is a proven winner, part of a wide-ranging and highly successful line of Rolls-Royce powerplants. The engine has built on the remarkable record of the T56, its predecessor on the C130, maintaining the Rolls-Royce position as the world-leader in engines for military transport aircraft."
    AE 2100-D3 engines power C-130J Hercules aircraft in use by the U.S Air Force, Marine Corps, Coast Guard; plus, the Royal Air Force, the Royal Australian Air Force, the Italian Air Force and the Royal Danish Air Force.
    The million-hour service mark is a significant milestone for the engines and the aircraft - the world's first responder.
    The C-130 has been the U.S. Air Force's primary tactical transport and special mission aircraft since 1956, powered by Rolls-Royce T56 engines. The "J" version of the aircraft, powered by AE 2100-D3 engines, continue that legacy.
    A similar version of the engine, the AE 2100-D2, powers the C-27J Spartan aircraft in use by the Hellenic Air Force and being delivered to the Italian and Bulgarian air forces. The C-27J is also a candidate for the Joint Cargo Aircraft program for the U.S. Army and Air Force.
    AE 2100 engines are part of the Rolls-Royce AE "common core" engine line. Along with the AE 3007 and AE 1107C-Liberty, the proven engine line has totalled more than 21 million hours of service.
