The United States Air Force Life Cycle Management Center (AFLCMC), based at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Congressman Mike Turner’s district, awarded GE Aviation a $1 billion contract to continue maturing its three-steam adaptive cycle engine via the Adaptive Engine Transition Program (AETP). Congressman Turner released the following statement:

“I congratulate GE on the continuation of their revolutionary aircraft engine program. GE’s work with the Air Force, and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base specifically, is crucial to the success of our military, country, and community. I look forward to the continued work this contract will bring to Southwest Ohio."
