Pratt & Whitney Military Engines delivered the 507th and final production F119 engine for the US Air Force F-22 Raptor fleet in ceremonies at Middletown, Connecticut, on 17 January 2013. Production deliveries of the 35,000-pound thrust class F119-PW-100 turbofan engines began in 2001. The high-thrust-to-weight F119 incorporates stealth technology and features a two-dimensional, pitch vectoring exhaust nozzle. Nozzle position management is integrated with the F-22 flight control system and is automatically regulated by the engine’s Full-Authority Digital Electronic Control. Pratt & Whitney has partnered with the Oklahoma City Air Logistics Center to manage scheduled overhauls of the F119 engine fleet, which is expected to be in service though the 2030s.
