Sixth Lot of F135 Engines 'Powers The World'
The Connecticut Business News Journal recently reported on Pratt & Whitney's recent $194.1 million contract award for F135 engines. The contract - the first production contract to include two of our key international partners and customers - covers long-lead materials for the sixth lot of F135 engines.
The sixth lot calls for 37 install engines, including 18 conventional take-off and landing (CTOL) engines for the U.S. Air Force; seven carrier variant (CV) engines for the U.S. Navy; six short take-off and vertical landing (STOVL) propulsion systems for the U.S. Marine Corps; four CTOL engines for the Italian Air Force; and two CTOL engines for The Royal Australian Air Force. The main engines deliveries in LRIP 6 are slated to begin in June 2013.
The headline? "P&W Powers The World" - we love it!
