Rolls-Royce has signed two contracts with the US Air Force for aftermarket services and spares for C-130J military transport aircraft. The two contracts have a total value of up to $235m over five years.
Under the services contracts, Rolls-Royce will provide comprehensive propulsion system services for its AE 2100D3 engines, Dowty R-391 propellers and other propulsion system items on C-130J aircraft. The aircraft are flown by the US Air Force, US Air Force Training Command, Air National Guard, US Air Force Reserve and US Air Force Special Operations Command.
The agreement covers the entire propulsion system on the C-130J aircraft, including support for all supply and off-wing maintenance on the engines and propellers, and providing depot maintenance on the nacelles.
Rolls-Royce will also supply 17 AE 2100D3 engines and additional spare parts required to ensure full availability of the propulsion system.
