Paul Craig, Rolls-Royce, President – Services, said: “Rolls-Royce has supported the warfighter and these remarkable, revolutionary aircraft since they entered service in 2007. Our MissionCare services model ensures the warfighters are focused on their missions, not their engine availability. Rolls-Royce is proud to serve the Marine Corps, Navy and Air Force and contribute to the success of V-22 missions around the world.”

The AE engine fleet has topped 77 million hours of dependable service around the world.
