Canadian Commercial Corporation (CCC) has been awarded a $225 million contract to provide the U.S. Air Force with the depot repair support required for the F138 turbofan engine and components.
The firm-fixed-price, indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity (IDIQ) contract (FA8124-20-D-0004) was awarded by the U.S. Air Force Life Cycle Management Center at the Tinker Air Force Base, Oklahoma. This award is the result of a competitive acquisition and fiscal 2020 operations and maintenance funds in the amount of around $1 million are being obligated at the time of the award.
The contract work will be performed at Richmond, British Columbia, and is expected to be completed by Feb. 11, 2030.
F138 is the U.S. military designation of the General Electric CF6-80C2 high-bypass turbofan engine produced by GE Aviation.
The F138-GE-100 engine powers the U.S. Air Force’s Lockheed C-5M Super Galaxy heavy strategic transport aircraft, the largest aircraft in the U.S. military inventory. The aircraft has four F138 engines and each delivers a thrust of 51,000 lbf (230 kN).
Four CF6-80C2 (CF6-80C2B1 variant delivering 250 kN each) engines also power the U.S. Air Force’s Boeing VC-25A “Air Force One” aircraft. The VC-25 is a military version of the Boeing 747 airliner, modified for presidential transport and operated as Air Force One, the call sign of any USAF aircraft carrying the President of the United States (POTUS).
