One-Hundredth F135 Engine For The F-35 Lightning II Delivered

CTOL Engine Delivered Ahead Of Contract Requirements

Pratt & Whitney has delivered the 100th F135 propulsion system, the power plant for the F-35 Lightning II, to the U.S. government. The conventional take-off and landing (CTOL) engine was delivered ahead of contract requirements and indicates continued progress and successful execution of the F-35 program.

"With the delivery of this 100th engine, we are continuing our legacy of fielding the most advanced military jet engine technology to the benefit of the warfighter," said Cliff Stone, director, F135 Engine Program. "We are committed to continuing to improve our production process, sustaining on-time deliveries while reducing cost to ensure the long-term success of the F-35 program."

"The F135 is the most powerful engine ever developed for fighter aircraft, and we are immensely proud of the capabilities it offers the F-35," Stone added.  "We are making tremendous progress on the program, along with the overall F135 industry team, in delivering the safest, most affordable and reliable propulsion system for our U.S. and international partners, and for a growing community of allied nation customers."
