The Egyptian Air Force has selected the F100-PW-229 engine enhancement package (EEP) engine to power its new fleet of F-16s, as part of the overall Egyptian Peace Vector VII F-16 programme.

The air force will get the EEP from Pratt & Whitney, under the US Government foreign military sales programme, valued at more than $150m.

The air force will use the F100-PW-229 EEP engine in its F-16 fleet, to ensure a lower total cost of ownership and an outstanding record of safety.

The F100-PW-229 EEP engine has been funded and qualified by the USAF, as the only fighter engine, to the 6,000 cycle capability.

The EEP engine is capable of increasing the engine depot inspection interval from an average of seven years to ten years, and reduces the life-cycle cost up to 30% over the life of the engine.

The EEP engine configuration reduces the predicted in-flight shutdown rate by up to 25%, and offers significant safety benefits.
