THE ENGINE OF CHOICE FOR TODAY'S F-15 AND F-16

 

 

With over 28 million flight hours flown by 23 air forces, the F100 family of engines is the most trusted and experienced propulsion solution for our customers around the world. The F100 is the exclusive propulsion system for the USAF’s entire fleet of operational F-15s; and its industry-leading dependability, reliability, and performance delivers superior capability to the warfighter. The F100 is currently in production and Pratt & Whitney is committed to supporting the F100 fleet for decades to come; to include powering the new F-15EX.

 

 

REDEFINING FULL LIFE

The F100-PW-229 achieves the objective of increasing engine depot maintenance interval from 4,300 to 6,000 total
accumulated cycles (TACs), effectively extending the typical depot interval from 7 to 10 years and provides a 30 percent
life-cycle cost reduction over the life of the engine.
 
The latest configuration is especially important to the end user in increasing the depot maintenance interval and reducing
operating cost of F-15 and F-16 fleets. This configuration is the standard in all new production F100-PW-229 engines.
The current configuration of the F100-PW-229 engine is suitable for new USAF fighter applications, such as the F-15EX.
