General Electric's (NYSE: GE) aviation segment will manufacture 21 turboshaft engines for the fifth batch of lot 5 CH-53K King Stallion helicopters under a $101.5M contract modification from the U.S. Navy.

GE Aviation will receive the full amount at the time of award and also provide programmatic and logistics support services for the T408-GE-400 aircraft engines, the Department of Defense said Wednesday.

Work will take place in Lynn, Massachusetts, through December 2024.

The engine has logged more than 6K testing hours that include CH-53K flight tests.
