Rolls secures £194m STOVL order

Britain’s blue chip aerospace and defence sector manufacturer Rolls-Royce has received a contract for $315m (£194m) from Pratt & Whitney to supply its LiftSystem (pictured) for 17 F-35B Lightning II aircraft.

Rolls is the only company in the world to produce the advanced technology that enables F-35B aircraft to perform Short Take Off and Vertical Landings (STOVL), and that provides increased mission flexibility.

Neil Mehta, Rolls-Royce LiftSystem Programme Director said, “Rolls-Royce continues to focus on increasing efficiency as we provide this vital capability to the F-35 Lightning II Joint Strike Fighter programme. We anticipate continuous cost improvements as production volumes ramp up to meet the needs of the F-35 programme.”
