Air Force Issues $403M F-16 Service Life Extension RFP for Small Businesses

The U.S. Air Force has kicked off a small business set-aside solicitation for a potential 10-year, $403 million contract to extend the service life of the military branch’s fleet of F-16 Fighting Falcon fighter aircraft.

The indefinite-delivery/indefinite-quantity contract has a five-year ordering period and a five-year option, the Air Force said in a request for proposals notice posted Monday on FedBizOpps.

In April, the Air Force approved the F-16 Service Life Extension Program that seeks to extend the flight hour limit for Lockheed Martin-built F-16 aircraft to support operations through 2048 and beyond.

The service branch aims to lengthen the structural service life of the F-16 fleet from 8,000 to 13,856 flight hours through the production and delivery of up to 841 SLEP modification kits.

Interested parties can submit proposals through Jan. 8.
