F100-PW-229 EEP :


The PW-F100-229 engine is the latest F100 variant with higher thrust and improved performance enhancements over its 220 predecessor. The “EEP” engine package provides improved durability and performance. Like its 220 predecessor, the 229 engine is extensively used in F-16 and F-15 aircraft worldwide. This engine is manufactured and supported by the Original Engine Manufacturer (OEM), Pratt & Whitney. MEPC is exploring options to provide engine MRO services  on the 229EEP engine.
