Selected to accelerate the Advanced F-15 with enhanced technology
GE’s advanced F110 engine has been significantly improved to adapt to the unique demands of the F-15EX. New increased airflow, jet engine efficiency, a three-stage chord blisk fan and an advanced radial augmentor reduce complexity, improve maintainability and increase the life span of parts. Built with capability in reserve, the F-110 engine can adapt to changing global threats and mission needs for decades to come.
GE has been selected to power 100% of new production F-15s ordered over the past 10 years, including every Advanced F-15 aircraft. With all testing complete and fly-by-wire fully integrated, GE is the lowest risk solution for the entire F-15EX fleet.
Additional jet engine development
Global threats present an urgent and compelling need for the most dependable fighters. Only GE’s active engine production line and robust supply chain are equipped to power the F-15EX now.
