  • 24-Nov-2010 01:26 EST

Goodrich Corp. has received a production contract from Lockheed Martin to supply 160 pylons for the U.S. Air Force C-5 Galaxy strategic airlifter Reliability Enhancement and Re-engining Program (RERP). Goodrich content is expected to generate $300 million in revenue for the additional 40 C-5B/C aircraft planned to be upgraded in the RERP, excluding any aftermarket revenue. Work will be performed by Goodrich's Aerostructures teams in Chula Vista, CA and Foley, AL. The contract is a follow-on to an earlier agreement between Goodrich and Lockheed Martin to provide pylons and nacelles for three test aircraft as well as nine airplanes in the initial phases of the RERP. Goodrich also holds a Life of Program contract with GE Aircraft Engines to provide nacelles for the GE CF6-80C2 engines that will power all 49 C-5Ms in the RERP. The pylons, the structures that attach the propulsion system to the aircraft's wing, are to be delivered in early 2011 through the end of 2015 under the new contract.
