Air Force RFP To Replace KC-135 Is Open
The NewGen Tanker that Boeing will propose as its platform for
the U.S. Air Force's KC-X recapitalization program will be powered
by Pratt & Whitney's PW4062 engine.
"Pratt & Whitney is honored to partner with Boeing on the
NewGen platform to be offered as America's next generation of
tankers for the U.S. Air Force's KC-X program," said Bill Begert,
Pratt & Whitney Vice President of Military Business Development
and Aftermarket Services.
Pratt & Whitney has delivered more than 2,500 PW4000-94
commercial engines that collectively have logged more than 100
million flight hours on commercial aircraft around the world. The
PW4062 is the highest thrust model in Pratt & Whitney's
PW4000-94 commercial engine family and is offered for both
commercial freighter and military tanker applications. Two PW4062
engines, each delivering 62,000 pounds of thrust, will power The
Boeing Company's NewGen Tanker (file photo below).
The PW4000 family of engines includes models with thrust ratings
ranging from 52,000 pounds to 98,000 pounds. The PW4000 family
meets all required emissions and noise regulations, and offers
superior fuel economy and maintainability. The PW4000-94 engine
operates commercially on Boeing 747, 767 and MD-11 aircraft and the
Airbus A300/310 series.
