GE secures continued F-15EX engine production

The US Air Force (USAF) has contracted General Electric (GE) to continue engine production for the Boeing F-15EX Eagle II combat aircraft.

The US Department of Defense (DoD) announced on 29 October that it had awarded GE USD1.58 billion for Lots 2+ 96734aa3 567d 4ad8 b239 2994149b944cengine production, covering 29 F110-GE-129 engines (installs and spares), as well as seven option lots for a probable quantity of 329 total engines if all options are exercised.

Work will be performed in Cincinnati, Ohio, and San Antonio, Texas. Deliveries are expected to begin in 2023, and will be complete by 30 June 2031.

GE is the incumbent F-15EX powerplant provider, having previously been contracted to deliver Lot 1 engines through to 30 November 2022. In September 2020, the USAF announced that it was opening up Lot 2 to 8 to competition. Pratt & Whitney offered its F100-PW-229 powerplant but this was not selected.
