Pratt & Whitney F135 Engine

Congressional Debate

"I think, Mr. Chairman, this issue of industrial base is a very good question and I don't think anybody's ever said that GE's going to shut up shop and go home if they're not part of this contract."
Scott Donnelly, President and CEO, GE Aviation, Senate Armed Services Committee, 3/15/06
"On the record, GE has the largest share of the engine market. Now, I know that can change over time but my own conclusion about the industrial base in this case is that these are three strong companies."
Senator Joe Lieberman, Senate Armed Services Committee, 3/15/06
