These contracts which fall under an existing indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract, will provide F110 engines, installs, spares and modernised engine management system computers for Lockheed Martin F-16C/D Block 70 aircraft, as well as the Boeing F-15QA Advanced Eagle. The contracts involve foreign military sales to Bulgaria, Slovakia, Qatar and Taiwan.
“GE Aviation is honoured to support the US Air Force and foreign military sale customers,” said Shawn Warren, GE Aviation’s vice president and general manager of large combat and mobility engines. “We say GE’s F110 engine remains the engine of choice of modern F-15 and F-16 fleets around the world because we continue to support the F110 with a continuous infusion of new technology, including our Service Life Extension Program (SLEP).”
GE’s F110 engine powers 86% of F-15s delivered globally over the last 15 years and 70% of today’s most advanced USAF F-16C/D fleet. GE Aviation also powers two-thirds of US military fighters and helicopters.
