Pilkington: F-15 Eagle supply contract

In February, the United States Department of the Air Force, Air Force Materiel Command, awarded Pilkington Aerospace a multi-year contract to supply F-15 canopy spares to support the entire fleet through Warner Robbins Air Force base in Georgia.

Pilkington Aerospace has been original equipment supplier on all variants of the aircraft since the Eagle's first flight in 1972.Another 199 were made by Mitsubishi, which Pilkington Aerospace has supported through a technology transfer programme and raw materials supply to Mitsubishi Rayon Co.Ltd in Nagoya, Japan.

In addition to the United States and Japan, this twin engine, fixed-swept-wing, all-weather, long range, air superiority fighter, flies in the Air Forces of Saudi Arabia, South Korea and Israel.

This year Boeing is recommissioning its St Louis production line to support the sale of another 40
F-15Ks to South Korea.

Pilkington Aerospace is in hot pursuit of this new opportunity against the stiff competition that has developed to supply spares over the 30 years the F-15 Eagle has been in service.
