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-400 was developed to re-engine the existing F-14As, transforming them into F-14Bs. New production F-14Ds were powered by the F110-GE-400. The F110-GE-400s offers increased range, endurance, maneuverability and the capability to make carrier takeoffs without afterburning over F-14s original TF30 engines.
