Experience the power of cooperation

EUROJET – the cornerstone of cooperation between four global market leaders in the aero engine industry, Rolls-Royce, MTU Aero Engines, ITP and Avio Aero, has been pivotal in creating the world’s most advanced 4th generation military turbofan – the EJ200. The ground breaking technology evident in the EJ200 engine is best
witnessed by the astounding performance of the Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft which is fitted with two of these spectacular beasts. EUROJET manages the entire EJ200 project from inception through production, support and export.

Cutting-edge innovation and technology

The EJ200 is designed to fulfil the most demanding requirements of today’s fighter aircraft, delivering a high thrust-to-weight ratio combined with simple engine architecture. The EJ200 is a two-spool turbo-based fan with modular design which allows for maximum availability and minimum operating costs throughout the life of the weapon system.
