Pratt & Whitney lands a $314mn USAF contract for F-22 F-119-PW-100 engines support
Pratt and Whitney, a subsidiary of United Technologies Corp., has been awarded a $313,879,396 contract for sustainment of F-22 Raptor fighter's F119-PW-100 engines, the US Department of Defense announced on its website on Dec. 23, 2016.

"Contractor will provide parts necessary for engine sustainment. Work will be performed at East Hartford, Connecticut; Edwards Air Force Base, California; Elmendorf AFB, Alaska; Hickam AFB, Hawaii; Hill AFB, Utah; Holloman AFB, New Mexico; Langley AFB, Virginia; Nellis AFB, Nevada; Sheppard AFB, Texas; Tinker AFB, Oklahoma and Tyndall AFB, Florida, and is expected to be complete by Dec. 31, 2017," the US DoD stated.

The F-119 is an afterburning turbofan developed by P&W for the Lockheed Martin F-22 Raptor stealth fighter jet. The engine delivers thrust in the 35,000 lbf (160 kN) class.

The F119 engine delivers a strong aircraft maneuverability with its two-dimensional pitch vectoring exhaust nozzle. This convergent/divergent nozzle vectors thrust as much as 20 degrees up or down. Nozzle position management is integrated with the F-22 flight control system and is automatically regulated by the Full-Authority Digital Electronic Control (FADEC), as are hundreds of other engine and aircraft operating parameters.

P&W's F-119 engine actually powers the 187 F-22 Raptor fighter jets actually in service with the US Air Force.
