M250-series engines were originally developed by the former Allison Engine. To date, 31,000 have been produced, and 16,000 are in service, according to Rolls-Royce, which acquired Allison in 1995. The global fleet has logged more than 250 million flight hours among 170 aircraft types, primarily rotorcraft but also fixed-wing. Helicopter types utilizing the engine include the Bell 206 series and MD Helicopters MD500 series.
