(Source: Eurojet; issued June 18, 2007)
PARIS LE BOURGET/HALLBERGMOOS, Germany --- Powering the Eurofighter Typhoon, the EJ200 engine occupies an enviable position on the world stage. With more than 1,400 engines on order it is the largest new generation military engine programme currently in production. Acknowledged during international symposia as the benchmark military engine, the EJ200 delivers unprecedented levels of performance and reliability.

The EJ200 engine has accumulated 50,000 Engine Flying Hours in service with the four Nation Air Forces (Germany, UK, Spain and Italy).

The superior levels of performance of the EJ200 engine continue to impress all pilots who fly the Eurofighter Typhoon. The EJ200 delivers an outstanding thrust-to-weight ratio, high levels of endurance, low fuel consumption and super-cruise capability. Integrated digital engine control allows unrestricted thrust modulation even during aggressive aircraft manoeuvres. This capability is delivered through a combination of advanced technology and simple engine architecture.

Hartmut J. Tenter, Managing Director of EUROJET, comments: “We are very proud to deliver such an outstanding state-of-the-art product to the customer. Customer satisfaction is important in our business. The EJ200 is the benchmark military engine and is set to maintain this world-leading position”.
