Rolls-Royce Holdings, a British multinational aerospace company, is currently making a bid to displace General Electric (GE) and Pratt & Whitney as the engine supplier for the new Airbus A380 aircraft for Emirates, a Dubai-based airline. Securing Emirates as a customer for Rolls-Royce’s Trent 900 A380 engine would be a huge success for the company, as the Gulf airline is one of the largest buyers of the A380 passenger plane in the world. Airbus, which has not booked any new buyers for the A380 aircraft since 2012, has been relying on Emirates airlines for approximately half the total aircraft orders. With this in mind, overtaking major suppliers GE and Pratt & Whitney as the engine supplier would catapult Rolls-Royce to the top of the aerospace engine industry. According to Rolls-Royce CEO, the company considers itself very well-positioned in the competition for Emirates’ business.

The Pilatus PC-12 turboprop has been highly successful since its initial certification back in 1994. The aircraft designed and manufactured by Pilatus Aircraft, boasts extreme flexibility, utility, and versatility. The cabin can be filled with passengers or cargo at high fuel-efficiency. With the rising cost of fuel, the benefit of having a single power plant instead of two makes this aircraft very desirable. Pilatus has had over 200 orders for the latest model of this aircraft. The PC-12 really has no real direct competition. Its closest competitor is the Beech King Air B200, which has two PT-6 engines instead of one. With that being said, the PC-12 is really in a niche all on its own. It is very unique in having a fast, pressurized short/rough field, single-engine turboprop.
