GE Aviation Awarded US$707 million for F110 engine production

The U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC) has awarded GE Aviation four contract actions valued at around US$707 million for F110-GE-129 engine production. These contracts which fall under an existing indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract, will provide F110 engines, installs, spares and modernized 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’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 U.S. military fighters and helicopters.

Over the last two months, GE Aviation has been awarded more than US$1.2 billion in contracts to produce engines and hardware to support the U.S. military and international customers.
