About the F100:

The Pratt & Whitney F100 is a two-spool afterburning turbofan engine. The F100 has been selected by the U.S. Air Force (USAF), Navy, Air Force Reserve, Air National Guard (ANG) and 22 foreign nations for the BoeingF-15 Eagle/F-15E Strike Eagle and the Lockheed MartinF-16 Fighting Falcon multi-role fighters. F100 engines power 99% of all USAF F-15 aircraft and 62% of the world's inventory of F-16 fighters. The F100 has a record of dependability, performance and safety.

The latest model in the F100 Series, the F100-PW-229, is an improved high-thrust improvement of the older F100-PW-220. The F100-PW-229 incorporates proven

technological innovations and generates more than 29,000 pounds of thrust with afterburner. The modular maintenance concept, coupled with a state-of-the art FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control) system with improved, real-time engine monitoring and fault isolation capability, promotes the highest level of operational readiness. The newest engine in the Pratt & Whitney 229-Series, the F100-PW-229 Engine Enhancement Package (EEP) - launched in 2004 - achieves the objective of increasing the engine depot inspection interval from 4,300 to 6,000 Total Accumulated Cycles (TAC), effectively extending the typical depot interval from 7 to 10 years and, at the same time, providing a 30% engine life-cycle cost reduction. Furthermore, the F100PW-229 engine is the only fighter engine funded and qualified by the U.S. Air Force to the 6,000-cycle capability.

The F100-PW-229 EEP includes advanced hot section technology developed for the F119-PW-100 turbofan used on the F-22 Raptor and the F135 engine used on the F-35 Lightning II. The EEP configuration was incorporated into all production F100-PW-229 engines in 2009 and has been specifically designed to be easily installed in all existing pre-2009 F100-PW-229 engines.
