Pratt & Whitney announces Norway F-16 engine support contract

14th October 2013 - 14:21 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Pratt & Whitney will support the Royal Norwegian Air Force's F100-PW-220E engine fleet under a contract between the company and the Norwegian Defence Logistics Organisation (NDLO). The engine powers the force’s F-16 fighters.

The four year performance-based Material Management Program (MMP) contract will see the company provide material forecasting, item repair management and provisioning of operational, intermediate, and depot-level spare parts, in order to meet Norway's F-16 fleet readiness objectives.

Howie Chandler, vice president, Military Business Development and International Programs, Pratt & Whitney, said: ‘This agreement builds on a strong 30-year relationship Pratt & Whitney has with the Royal Norwegian Air Force on the F100 engine powering their F-16 fighters. We are pleased to continue supporting and providing services with this follow-on MMP award.’

Lt Col Jorn Hoelsaether, F-16 maintenance commander, NDLO, added: ‘We've had quite a good improvement in available serviceable engines since the beginning of the programme. This programme has resulted in an increased mission availability rate and supports my ability to reach the annual flying hour goal of the Norwegian Air Force.’
