The EJ200 is a collaborative engine between Rolls-Royce, MTU, Avio and ITP – the shareholders behind EUROJET Turbo GmbH formed in the late 1980s to develop the engine for the Typhoon. The technology of the EJ200 makes it both smaller and less complex in layout than current engines of a similar thrust class, while giving it lower fuel consumption and an unprecedented power-to-weight ratio.  The first series production Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft were flown in February 2003. In service, the EJ200 exceeds or matches the most demanding international standards for operational support required by the US, Europe and other International customers.
