The GE Rolls-Royce Fighter Engine Team (FET) F136 engine is currently in its Transition Award Contract phase having successfully completed all Phase III, Pre-SDD program requirements in April of 2005, on schedule and under cost. The first F136 CTOL engine was successfully tested for the first time on 22 July 2004. Testing on the first F136 STOVL propulsion system began on 10 February 2005. Both engines were delivered early and completed testing in April of 2005 accumulating over 200 hours of engine tests. The F136 anticipates the awarding of its multi-year SDD award contract in August of 2005.
