Turbine Sound Studios presents the mighty Airbus 380 GP7000 soundpack for FSX. This is 1 out of 2 soundpacks in the Airbus 380 Soundpack line.
The Airbus 380 engine config is
- Engine alliance GP7000 Series
- Rolls Royce Trent 900 Series
The competing Rolls-Royce Trent 900 was named as the lead engine for the then-named A3XX in 1996 and was initially selected by almost all A380 customers.
However the GE/PW engine increased its share of the A380 engine market to the point where as of September 2007 it will power 47% of the super-jumbo fleet.
This disparity in sales was resolved in a single transaction, with Emirates' order of 55 GP7000-powered A380-800s,
comprising over one quarter of A380 sales (as of September 2007). Emirates has traditionally been a Rolls-Royce customer.
A380 aircraft powered by the GP7000s will have A380-86X model numbers as 6 is the code for Engine Alliance engines.
Ground testing of the engine began in April 2004 and the engine was run for the first time on an A380 on August 14, 2006.
The American Federal Aviation Administration certified the engine for commercial operation on January 4, 2006.
On August 25, 2006, an A380-861 test aircraft (MSN 009) made the first flight of an Engine Alliance powered A380.
The flight began and ended at Toulouse and lasted about four hours. Tests were performed on the engines' flight envelope, cruise speed, and handling.
A day earlier, the same aircraft performed rejected takeoff tests on the engines.
The Engine Alliance offers the GP7200 for the Airbus A380 passenger and freighter configurations. The GP7200 is rated at 81,500 lbf (363,000 N) of thrust. The engine is offered with two ratings appropriate for the various A380 configurations and take-off weights: GP7270 for the 560 tonne variant, and GP7277 for the 590 tonne A380-800 freighter.
