AVIATION DAILY - Rolls-Royce said the Trent 800, which will power the
Boeing 777, made a successful first run at thrusts in excess of its
84,000-pound certification requirement within two hours of the start of
testing in Derby.  Certification is set for February 1995.  The smaller
Trent 700 for the Airbus A330 is scheduled to be certified later this
year.  Rolls said the Trent 800 has captured 22 percent of 777 sales and
will enter service early in 1996 with Thai Airways International.  A
future version could reach 100,000 pounds of thrust.
