Nov. 23, 2021
The Defense Logistics Agency ordered five-years’ worth of consumable replacement parts and services for T700 turboshaft engine in service across U.S. military aircraft fleets.

GE Aviation has two, five-year contracts from the Defense Logistics Agency totaling more than $1 billion for consumable replacement parts and services for T700 turboshaft engine in service across U.S. military aircraft fleets.

The T700 is a series of turboshaft engines widely installed in a twin-engine configuration for U.S. military helicopters manufactured by Bell Helicopter and Sikorsky Aircraft. The engines are also installed in some fixed-wing aircraft. The series was launched in 1978, and over 24,000 have been built subsequently, through various updates and modifications.

In the first contract, valued at $284 million, GE will provide field-level consumables and services. In the second, worth $722 million, it will supply depot-level repairables and module section components through a five-year, $722 million contract.

“The T700 engine is the heart of medium-lift helicopter fleets across the U.S. military, and we’re proud to continue supporting multiple U.S. service branches through this contract,” stated Harry Nahatis, vice president and general manager of GE Turboshaft Engine programs. “Readiness and cost are two major focuses for GE and the Department of Defense, and this contract allows us to continue improving on both fronts.”
