Under this agreement, Turbochrome would provide certain repair services to Pratt & Whitney of the F100 229 engine, parts and components on the engines installed on F-15I and F-16I aircraft operated by the Israel Air Force.

Pratt & Whitney has recently announced that as of January 1st, 2016 it will provide full propulsion sustainment support, which includes material forecasting, item repair management, and provisioning of operational, intermediate and depot-level spare parts for the IAF's full fleet of F100-PW-229 engines.

The FMP gives the IAF the means to perform all of its needed missions with guaranteed propulsion system availability and the added benefit of known propulsion maintenance cost for the next 15 years.

TAT's President and CEO, Mr. Itsik Maaravi, commented on the new agreement: "We are proud of this new agreement between Pratt & Whitney and Turbochrome. This contract strengthens our relationship with Pratt & Whitney, and our position as provider of products and services to the commercial and military aerospace sectors."
