Pratt & Whitney to support ROKAF F100 engines
Pratt & Whitney will support the F100 engines powering the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) fleet of Lockheed Martin F-16 and Boeing F-15K fighters under a recent contract award. The $300 million Performance Based Logistics (PBL) contract, announced on 8 January, was issued by the Republic of Korea government.
The PBL will see Pratt & Whitney provide key support for the F100 engines in the intermediate engine shops and at the depot level. The agreement covers more than 230 engines under a five-year parts and repair services programme.
Howie Chandler, vice president, military business development and aftermarket services for Pratt & Whitney, said: ‘Pratt & Whitney is proud of our decades-long partnership with the Republic of Korea Air Force, providing reliable engines and affordable readiness in support of their fleet. We look forward to expanding our level of support to the Republic of Korea Air Force's fighter engines, further improving our position as a premier fleet management provider for military aircraft engine fleets around the globe.’
The F100 engine powers F-15 and F-16 aircraft worldwide, and has flown in excess of 24 million hours; 7,200 engines have been delivered to more than 23 air forces globally.
