B777 Engines

Hi all, so I know this might be an unrelated question but might I ask is the B777-300ER engines in the game, GE90’s or Rolls Royce Trent 800’s? Thanks!

I believe that its GE90s but its hard to tell with an outdated model.

Have you checked the Boeing Website? I’m sure you can find out everything you need to know about the 777 there :)

The engines on the 777-300ER are GE90-115B’s, they are pretty realistic in the game! Good thrust output and around the same fuel burn

If you want to know the specific engines on the aircraft find the registration code on the aircraft and look it up. It’ll pull up all of the info about the aircraft including stuff like age, certificate of airworthiness and engine model. That’ll give you the exact answer.

The ONLY engines on the 777-300ER are the GE90/115B

777-200 (or -200ER) can have
Pratt and Whitney PW4074, PW4074D, PW4077, PW4077D,PW4090,PW4084D, and PW4090-3

General Electric Turbofan Model: GE90-76B, GE90-85B, GE90-90B, GE90-94B

Rolls-Royce Turbofan Model: RB211-Trent 875-17, RB211-Trent, 877-17, RB211-Trent 884-17, RB211-Trent 892-17, or RB211 Trent 892B-17, RB211 Trent 895-17

The 777-200LR can have
GE90-115B
GE90-110B1

Is this all from google or from memory? If it the latter than that’s very impressive! I’m trying to learn this myself.

I thought the GE90 engines were used for the Dreamliner (787) please correct me if I am wrong

Thank you!

No the engines used on the dreamliner are GEnx and the Rolls Royce trent 1000

Oh, ok thanks! Please correct me if I am wrong, but is it correct that the 787’s engines are very powerful compared to other aircraft’s engines?

Powerful in what way?

Give more thrust???

I mean, the thrust class is 53,000–74,000 lbf

Uuggghhh! I need to do my research! 😂🤣😂

1 lbf = 0.45359237 kg × 9.80665 m/s² = 4.448 N, or one pound force is equivalent to the product of 1 avoirdupois pound and the force which is equivalent to the mass multiplied by the acceleration due to gravity.

Ok, thanks! Will have a look

Some from memory but I copied the stats from googling.

The 777-200 launched with the PW4000 and can have 3 choices
RR Trent 800 series
PW4000 series
GE90 (early series GE90-77B etc)
These same series power the -200ER and -300 depending on airline choice with the -300 being uprated 90K Plus lbf thrust engines
(PW4090/4098, Trent 892, GE90-92B or a GE90-115B)

The exclusive engine on the 777-300ER (and -200LR) is the GE90-115B (or GE90-110B) with 115K pounds (or 110K pounds of thrust per engine)

IF does a superb job of modeling these. I’ve been test flying the 777-200ER as of late and it’s quite the aircraft. Plenty of thrust!

I think you’re meaning the bypass and overall pressure ratios The GEnx 1B’s bypass ratio is similar if not equal to the GE90 at 9.0:1 but the overall pressure ratio for the GEnx 1B (787 models) is up to 43.8:1 on takeoff and 53.3:1 at top of Climb which beats the GE90’s 42:1 overall bypass ratio. The Trent 1000’s on the 787 have a 50:1 overall ratio and a higher bypass ratio of over 10:1 so in THEORY they’re “more powerful” but not in plain pounds of thrust. Any questions feel free to give me a PM, I read this kind of stuff for fun lol.

Right then… Thank you for everyone that helped dig deep to it!!
