RUAG Gains SAR Approval for J85-GE-21 Engine

DoD Authorises Maintenance and Repair for US and FMS Customers

RUAG has received SAR (Source Approval Request) approval for maintenance and repair work on J85-GE-21 engines for the US federal government. Only suppliers with SAR approval are considered for US DoD tenders and contracts and for third parties via the Foreign Military Sales (FMS) process.

The J85-GE-21 engine is installed in the Northrop F-5 combat aircraft, still in service in a number of countries round the world, including the United States. With SAE approval for complete engines, RUAG will continue to secure its strategic partnership with customers in the long term and provide high-quality service.

The SAR approval for maintenance, repair and overhaul work on the engines is a unique seal of quality for RUAG, based on proven technical competence and long-standing expertise. It was granted by the DoD and will be valid for several years.
