Rolls-Royce has been awarded a $103.3m MissionCare contract by the US Department of Defense to provide support for the F405 (Adour) engines that power the US Navy’s T-45 training aircraft. The contract reflects the continued success of MissionCare support for the US Navy and exercises the fourth option year to provide guaranteed engine availability. This includes support ranging from on-wing through intermediate and depot level maintenance, under a five-year base contract that began in 2008. Rolls-Royce uses MissionCare to apply commercial Power By The Hour principles to the unique requirements of the defense industry.
