Pratt & Whitney, an RTX (NYSE: RTX) business, has been awarded an F100 engine contract for a material management program by Saudi Arabia’s Middle East Propulsion Company (MEPC), the prime contractor of the Saudi Ministry of Defense for F100 engine sustainment services. The maintenance contract, valued at $65.8 million, supplies spare parts and engine services in support of the Royal Saudi Air Force’s (RSAF) F-15 Eagles.

Under this construct, Pratt & Whitney will be more strategically integrated with MEPC and RSAF, gaining streamlined insight into engine data and inventory management processes. Pratt & Whitney will provide forecasting, technical support and timely material delivery to enable stronger operational readiness, more efficient predictive maintenance, optimal module turn times and improved engine availability. Work on this contract began in January 2024 and will run through the second half of 2025.

Pratt & Whitney will assume more responsibility for optimizing fleet readiness, allowing the customer to focus on critical missions,” said Josh Goodman, senior director of the F100 Program at Pratt & Whitney.
