Rolls-Royce announced today that it has been awarded a $97.3 million contract from the US Air Force to support its C-130J transport fleet in 2013.
The contract will see the power systems company provide logistics and program management support, engineering services, spares and technical data support for the Rolls-Royce AE 2100 engines as well as the nacelles and propellers on the US Air Force C-130J fleet.
Paul Craig, president of defence customer services, said, "We are proud that the US Air Force has again chosen Rolls-Royce to deliver our innovative and cost effective MissionCare support. Rolls-Royce has worked hard to develop service support that aligns our efforts with customer requirements for mission readiness."
This is sixth year the contract has been extended and Rolls-Royce has met availability metrics every year, maintaining more than 90 per cent parts and fleet availability.
