PC Pilot Summer Special 2008 - Reality check!
Due to land in the UK on 15th May.

Sim v Real
Following on from the success of our 'Live the Dream' Winter Special, we are proud to announce the launch of the much anticipated PC Pilot Summer Special.

Reality Check!
How close are they?
This new exciting issue compares the 'real' with the 'virtual' world of aviation. Inside we compare real aircraft alongside their virtual counterparts - both in terms of internal and external representation, as well as flight modelling. Aircraft under the spotlight include light aircraft, airliner and military. Also we take a look at how the scenery add-on packages compare with the real thing.

Fasten your seatbelt for flight adventures!
Join us on a trip from Phucket to Hong Kong via Singapore in a Boeing 767 and an adventure along the west coast of the UK in a Piper Cheyenne.

The Trent 900 Engine

Rolls-Royce: Powering the Whispering Giant - The Trent 900 Engine

The Rolls-Royce Trent 900 engines power the world’s largest airliner, the Airbus A380.

In February 2001, Rolls-Royce announced the launch of one of the most ambitious engineering programmes in the company’s Civil Aerospace history – to develop the Trent 900 engine to power the Airbus A380, a new and exciting aircraft which would become the largest civil airliner ever built.

The Trent 900 is the 4th member of the Trent family, and holds pride of place as the largest jet engine ever produced by Rolls-Royce. ‘Powering the Whispering Giant’ plots the Trent 900 journey in photographs from concept to design, development, testing, first flight on the A340 flying test bed, flight test on the A380, Route Proving, Service Readiness and Entry into Service in October 2007.

This colourful publication combines the best images from throughout the programme, with descriptions of each major step along the way, to offer the reader a unique insight into one of the most public and most exciting new jet engine programmes ever undertaken.
