Final Production F119 Engine Delivered To The U.S. Air Force

Pratt & Whitney Moves From Production To Sustainment On The Raptor Powerplant

The 507th and last production F119 engine has been delivered to the U.S. Air Force for its F-22 Raptor fleet. The F119-PW-100 turbofan is the world's first operational fifth-generation fighter engine in service and is providing dependable power for the F-22 Raptor, an aircraft known for its unparalleled maneuverability and its ability to "supercruise."  The engine, considered one of the Air Force's most successful, is the forefather of the F135 propulsion system powering the F-35 Lightning II.

"This is a bittersweet occasion for those of us who have played a part in 12 years of successful production deliveries," said Bennett Croswell, president of Military Engines at Pratt & Whitney. "The F119 production engine program might be ending but we look forward to a 30-40 year sustainment period in partnership with the Air Force to keep the fleet flying."

As Pratt & Whitney shifts from production to sustainment, the company has partnered with the U.S. Air Force at the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center to manage scheduled overhauls of the F119 engine fleet. "We accept this last production engine today, but are looking forward to our partnership with Pratt &Whitney in sustaining the F119 in the F-22 Raptor for decades to come," said Colonel Gregory M. Gutterman, F-22 Program Director, Fighters and Bombers Directorate, Air Force Materiel Command, during the ceremony.
