Rolls Royce is attending the 2013 Aero India show with a renewed sense of optimism for its prospects in this key Asian market.

Rolls-Royce hinted at a size increase for the still-under-wraps Falcon SMS super-midsize business jet, revealing it received a higher thrust requirement from Dassault for the RB282 engine that will power the twinjet. Until now, Rolls-Royce was talking about a 10,000-pound-thrust engine.
