(Adds details, background)
LONDON, May 2 (Reuters) - British aero-engine maker Rolls-Royce said its ability to fix the Trent 1000 fleet problem within budget meant it remained on track to hit its full-year cash and profit targets.
Rolls, which has taken a charge of 790 million pounds ($1 billion) to tackle the early corroding or cracking of engine blades in the fleet, said the cost of fixing the problem remained in line with earlier estimates.
Rolls-Royce, which makes engines for large civil aircraft and military planes, has been racing to fix the problem which has angered customers such as British Airways and forced the grounding of many planes.
That has complicated the transformation programme led by boss Warren East.
The company said on Thursday that the rest of the business was performing well however, and for the full year it remains confident of meeting its underlying operating profit and free cash flow guidance of 700 million pounds ($913 million), up or down by 100 million pounds.
"Our restructuring programme has continued to make progress as we aim to bring down commercial and administrative costs, improve our engineering efficiency and drive lasting culture change at Rolls-Royce," East said.
