Rolls-Royce received type certification from Brazil's ANAC and EASA for the AE3007A2, the latest model in the AE3007 series. The 9,440-pound-thrust engine, which powers Embraer's new super-midsize Legacy 650, received FAA approval in April. All engine development testing has been successfully completed and as of August 11 four engines had achieved more than 300 flying hours and cycles on two flight-test aircraft.
