RR to support AF C-130J fleet

Rolls-Royce has been awarded a contract for $182.7 million by the U.S. Air Force to expand the company's support of the C-130J transport fleet. The contract covers sustainment services for the Rolls-Royce AE 2100 engines as well as nacelles and propellers on the C-130J fleet. The work includes logistics and program management support, engineering services, spares and technical data support. The Air Force increased its order for spares and spare parts, as well as adding Rolls-Royce Field Service Representatives at two new bases. Rolls-Royce now provides C-130J support at 12 U.S. Air Force bases, with 10 in the U.S. and two overseas. (Source: Rolls-Royce, 02/21/14)
