Encyclopedia > General Electric F110

The F110 is an afterburning turbofan produced by General Electric. The F100 engine utilizes the same engine core design as the General Electric F101. For other uses of afterburner, see Afterburner (disambiguation). ... General Electric Aircraft Engines (GEAE) is the top supplier of aircraft engines in the world and offers engines for the majority of commercial aircraft. ... Four F101s power the B-1B The General Electric F101 afterburning turbofan powers the B-1B Lancer strategic bomber fleet of the USAF. The F101 was developed specifically for the Advanced Manned Strategic Aircraft, which became the B-1A. The F101 powered the four development aircraft from 1970 to 1981. ...


The F-14A entered service with the U.S. Navy in 1973 powered by Pratt & Whitney TF30s. By the end of the decade, following numerous problems with the original engine (and similar problems with P&W's F100 on the F-15 and F-16), the DoD began procuring the upgraded TF30-P-414A's. While these engines solved the serviceability problems, the fuel consumption and thrust was comparable to the inital model. Sailors prepare an F-14 Tomcat for flight on the aircraft carrier USS Abraham Lincoln, in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003). ... The United States Navy (USN) is the branch of the United States armed forces responsible for naval operations. ... The TF-30, produced by Pratt & Whitney was the worlds first afterburning turbofan. ... The United States Department of Defense, abbreviated as DoD or DOD and sometimes called the Defense Department, is a civilian Cabinet organization of the United States government. ...

In 1984 the F110-GE-100 was selected and designated the F110-GE-400 in Navy service. The new engine provided 23,100 lbf (103 kN) of thrust compared to the TF30s maximum thrust of 20,900 lbf (93 kN). These upgraded jets were known as F-14Bs, as were production aircraft powered by the F110. The same engine also powers the latest variant of the aircraft, the F-14D. 1984 is a leap year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar. ...


The F110-GE-129 will power the F-15K fleet of South Korea and is the first time production F-15s will be powered by the GE engine. The engines with be manufactured through a joint licensing agreement with Samsum Techwin Company. The McDonnell Douglas F-15 Eagle is an all-weather, extremely maneuverable, tactical fighter designed to permit the U.S. Air Force to gain and maintain air superiority in aerial combat. ...


The F-16 entered service powered by the Pratt & Whitney F100 afterburning turbofan. Seeking a way to drive unit costs down the USAF implemented the Alternative Fighter Engine (AFE) program in 1984, under which the engine contract would be awarded through competition. The F110 currently powers 86% of the USAF F-16C/Ds. The F-16 Fighting Falcon is a modern multi-role jet fighter aircraft built in the United States and used by dozens of countries all over the world. ... The F100 is an afterburning turbofan manufactured by Pratt & Whitney. ... CFM56-3 turbofan, lower half, side view. ... Seal of the Air Force. ...

The GE F110 provides 5,000 lbf (22 kN) more thrust than the P&W F100 and requires more air, which lead to the increase in the area of the engine intake. The F-16C/D Block 30/32s were the first to be built with this larger intake and a common engine bay, able to accept both engines.

Initial orders were for the F110-GE-100 rated at 28,000 lbf (125 kN). Later developments include the F110-GE-129 delivering 29,000 lbf (129 kN) thrust and the F110-GE-132 delivering 32,000 lbf (142 kN)
