Meggitt to Supply Fuel Bladders to the DLA Philadelphia for the F/A-18 Super Hornet

Meggitt PLC, a leading international company specialising in high performance components and subsystems for the aerospace, defence and selected energy markets, has signed a contract with the Defense Logistics Agency in Philadelphia for the supply of fuel bladders to the F/A-18 Super Hornet. The contract is valued at around $5.5 million and deliveries are scheduled to commence this month.

As an expert in polyurethane technology, Meggitt’s ground-breaking fuel bladder design is lightweight, highly flexible, durable and maintenance-free, providing a long-life solution. Its unique self-sealing properties have proved fundamental in safe-guarding both crew and aircraft from the impact of ground fire, ensuring a safe return to base.

Chris Allen, President of Meggitt’s Airframe division said, “We thank the DLA Philadelphia for their continued endorsement of our fuel bladder solutions. We are proud to be playing our part in safeguarding the lives of active servicemen and women around the world with our pioneering technologies.”
