New Engine Build
It always comes as a surprise when domestic and international customers learn that Kelly Aviation Center provides new engine assembly, inspection and test on the F110 engine that powers jet fighters F-15 and F-16. But, we've been doing so since 2003. In fact, Kelly is the only company within the continental United States to build new F110s, under an agreement with the engine's original equipment manufacturer (OEM), General Electric.
Kelly also performs new assembly on Service Life Extension Program (SLEP) rotors in support of the worldwide F110 engine fleet.
