Pratt & Whitney America JSF - F135
The F135 program with Pratt & Whitney America is one of the most advanced military programs ever developed.
Piaggio Aerospace have secured an agreement for the production and supply of a package of important components in several critical areas of the F135 engine. Participation in the program includes the manufacture of low-pressure turbine casings and high pressure turbine supports, along with various other components. Production planning for the individual parts is shared between Piaggio Aerospace and Pratt & Whitney.
