Pratt & Whitney Delivers 1,000th F117 Engine To U.S. Air Force

Powerplant (X4) For The C-17 Globemaster III

Pratt & Whitney has delivered the 1,000th F117 engine powering the C-17 Globemaster III transport aircraft to the United States Air Force. Four Pratt & Whitney F117 engines provide power for 100 percent of The Boeing Company's C-17 Globemaster III.

"Air Mobility Command relies on the products, services and support that Pratt & Whitney provides," said Lieutenant General Rusty Findley, Vice Commander, Air Mobility Command. "Our friends, allies and countrymen can rest assured knowing that AMC's C-17 Globemaster III, powered by Pratt & Whitney engines, will deliver the right effects, to the right place, at the right time."

The F117-PW-100 is a derivative of Pratt & Whitney's commercial PW2000 engine powering the Boeing 757. The F117 has consistently proven itself as a world-class reliable engine. Through Pratt & Whitney's ongoing investment in product improvements, the engine continuously surpasses established goals of time on wing, in-flight shut downs, and support turnaround time.

"Pratt & Whitney is proud to deliver the 1,000th engine to the U.S. Air Force, one of our key customers," says Bev Deachin, vice president, Pratt & Whitney Military Programs & Customer Support. "This milestone is yet another testament to the superb dependability, reliability and performance of Pratt & Whitney's F117 engine, and our dedication to our customers' airlift mission."

Four Pratt & Whitney F117 engines, each rated at 40,440 pounds of thrust, enable the C-17 transport to carry a payload of 160,600 pounds, take off from a 7,600-foot airfield, and fly 2,400 nautical miles without refueling.
