Pratt & Whitney awarded $355m F100 engine sustainment contract

Pratt & Whitney has been awarded an F100 engine performance-based logistics (PBL) sustainment contract by South Korea's Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA).

This contract, with a base value of $355m, is the third consecutive PBL contract Pratt & Whitney and DAPA have signed since 2012, offering on-going maintenance support for the Republic of Korea Air Force's F-15s and F-16s.

"For just over a decade, we have worked with DAPA on these performance-based logistics contracts to establish a more strategic sustainment solution for the ROKAF fighter fleet," said Chris Johnson, vice president of Fighter and Mobility Programs at Pratt & Whitney. "These contracts are a win-win for both customers and industry because they offer more efficient affordability and availability."

This contract is the latest initiative in an enduring partnership between Pratt & Whitney, DAPA and ROKAF, and it will support more efficient depot planning and improve overall fleet readiness through long-term material forecasting. Sustainment work began in December of 2023 and will run through the second half of 2027.
