Pratt & Whitney, a business under RTX, has been awarded an F100 engine performance-based logistics (PBL) sustainment contract by South Korea's Defense Acquisition Program Administration (DAPA).

The contract, with a base value of $355 million, represents the third consecutive PBL agreement between Pratt & Whitney and DAPA since 2012, aimed at providing ongoing maintenance support for the Republic of Korea Air Force's (ROKAF) F-15 Eagles and F-16 Fighting Falcons.

Chris Johnson, Vice President of Fighter and Mobility Programs at Pratt & Whitney, stated, "For just over a decade, we have worked with DAPA on these performance-based logistics contracts to establish a more strategic sustainment solution for the ROKAF fighter fleet. These contracts are a means to address efficiency and affordability concerns."

Sustainment work commenced in December 2023 and is scheduled to run through the second half of 2027.
