TAT Technologies’ wholly-owned subsidiary Turbochrome has secured a contract from Pratt & Whitney to provide engine overhaul for the Israeli Air Force’s fleet of F-15I and F-16I multirole fighter aircraft.

Under the terms of the agreement, the company will provide certain repair services to Pratt & Whitney’s F100 229 engine, parts and components for a period of 15 years.

TAT president and CEO Itsik Maaravi said: "We are proud of this new agreement between Pratt & Whitney and Turbochrome.

"This contract strengthens our relationship with Pratt & Whitney, and our position as provider of products and services to the commercial and military aerospace sectors"

"This contract strengthens our relationship with Pratt & Whitney, and our position as provider of products and services to the commercial and military aerospace sectors."

In January, Pratt & Whitney secured a contract to provide full propulsion sustainment support for the Israeli Air Force’s full fleet of F100-PW-229 increased performance engine (IPE) engines, which have a thrust of 129.4kN (29,000lb).

The contract covers provision for material forecasting, item repair management, and provisioning of operational, intermediate and depot-level spare parts for the F100-PW-229 engines.

A modified variant of the F-16D block 50 and 52 fighter and ground attack aircraft, the F-16I aircraft features specifically designed avionics and weapons systems capability customised to meet the requirements of the Israeli Air Force.

Meanwhile, the F-15I is designated Ra’am in the Israeli Air Force. It is an air-to-ground version of the F-15 air superiority fighter designed to attack targets day or night, and in all weather conditions.

The two-seat fighter is powered by Pratt&Whitney F100-PW-229 engines like its predecessor, but incorporates new and unique weapons, avionics, electronic warfare, and communications systems.
