Visit to Rolls-Royce Heritage Trust Museum
The design of aero-engines is at the leading edge of engineering - and it always has been since the Wright brother's first flight in 1903 when their engine struggled to carry one man about 250 metres. Since then the evolution of the aviation industry, to the point where everyone can fly to everywhere, has been largely driven by engineers designing more powerful, lighter and efficient propulsion systems.
The Rolls-Royce Heritage Trust has assembled about 100 engines which tell the story of aviation in all aspects - civil, military, VTOL and helicopters - from the very earliest piston engines to the latest jet engines such as the Trent 1000 - and the people involved in making it all happen. You will be taken through that exhibition by guides - former Rolls-Royce senior engineers who were leaders in the engineering of many of the engines on display.
