Pratt lands $2.7B global contract for military engine

East Hartford's Pratt & Whitney has won a five-year, $2.74 billion contract for out-of-state work to produce international military F-117 engines, according to the company and federal authorities.

The U.S. Defense Department said Wednesday the sole-source contract includes the U.S. Air Force as well as foreign military sales to Australia, Canada, India, Kuwait, Qatar, United Arab Emirates, U.K. and the Strategic Airlift Capability consortium.

Contract work is set to occur through 2022 at a United Airlines facility in San Francisco; the Columbus Engine Center in Columbus, Ga.; and Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma.

The F-117 engine powers international military Boeing aircraft built for military airlift missions, said Pratt Spokesman Matthew Bates.

Pratt is a division of Farmington-based United Technologies Corp.
