Description: The F110 was developed utilizing the same core design of the F101 engine. This engine has different fan and afterburner packages to tailor engine performance compared with the F101 engine. On 23 May 2005, General Electric was awarded a $57 million contract by the US Air Force (USAF) to upgrade an initial 95 F110 fighter engines to the Service Life Extension Program (SLEP) configuration in support of the F-16C/D aircraft. The US Air Force plans to upgrade roughly 800 F110 engines powering the F-16 aircraft under the Service Life Extension Program (SLEP) program. The upgraded engines will represent savings of more than $1 billion. The F110 SLEP test program is scheduled for completion in February 2005. GE estimates that SLEP program implementation will last at least six years. The SLEP program includes technology upgrades to the combustor, high pressure turbine, compressor and augmentor to reduce unscheduled removals by 50% and reduce the cost-per-flight-hour by 25%. Much of this hot-section hardware is derived from the highly-successful CFM56-7 engine, which powers the Boeing 737 jetliner. SLEP programs are also being developed for both the F101 and F118 engines for the B-1, B-2 and U-2 aircraft.

The F110-GE-129 is a derivative with greater performance of the proven F110-GE-100. Due its safety, F110-GE-129 has been chosen to power about 75% of total F-16C/D Block 50/52 fleet (75% F-16C/D Block 50, 25% F-16C/D Block 52). F-16C/D Block 50/52 are the most advanced F-16's variants produced in the 20th century. F110-GE-129 engines have been also selected to power Japan's F-2, an advanced F-16's derivative. As of November 2004, the program complete more than 1,148 hours of running time simulating 1,333 sorties, 4,639 total accumulated cycles and 8,253 afterburner light-offs. The program is preparing to initiate flight testing with F110-GE-100B SLEP engine and F110-GE-129 SLEP engine this month.

The F110-GE-129 engine was selected to power the latest version of the F-15 aircraft ordered by the Republic of Korea. The first F-15K took to the skies powered by F110 engines in March 2005. Samsung TechWin will manufacture in Korea 78 of the 88 engines purchased by the Republic of Korea Air Force (ROKAF) for the F-15K program. In early January 2006, the Government of Singapore selected General Electric F110-GE-129 engine rated at 29,000 pounds of thrust to power its newest F-15SG combat aircraft. US Air Force F-15E aircraft are powered by F100 engines. Up to 20 F-15SGs may be powered by F110 engines if finally Singapore executes its 8 aircraft option.
