U.S. Military Awards $83.7 Million Contract For V-22 Engines

Rolls-Royce To Provide Support For USMC, USAF Aircraft

The Department of Defence has awarded an $83.7 million contract to Rolls Royce for engines to power 19 V-22 aircraft operated by the US Marine Corps and Air Force. The contract, a modification of a prior agreement, includes a total of 38 Rolls-Royce AE 1107C engines manufactured in Indianapolis, Indiana. The contract was awarded through the Naval Air Systems Command in Patuxent River, Maryland.

“This contract demonstrates the trust the US Marine Corps and Air Force have in the Rolls-Royce AE 1107C engines which power their V-22 fleets,” said Tom Bell, Rolls-Royce, President – Defence. “Delivering reliable power is our constant focus at Rolls-Royce and we are dedicated to keeping those fleets mission ready for our customers.”

The Rolls-Royce AE 1107C engine is part of the AE product family, which has over 5,500 engines in service and more than 54 million flight hours, and exclusively powers the growing V-22 fleet for the US Marine Corps and Air Force. In addition to a dedicated team of Field Service Representatives, Rolls-Royce also supports the AE 1107C engine fleet through the new Defense Operations Center in Indianapolis, providing 24/7 real-time engineering support for V-22 operators.
