The Minister for Defence Industry Christopher Pyne said the contract extension will continue what has been a highly successful partnership with General Electric International Incorporated and its subcontractors. 

“This expanded commercial arrangement valued at approximately $230 million will see continued support for Australia’s current fleet of twenty four F/A-18F Super Hornets and twelve newly acquired EA-18G Growlers through until June 2025,” Minister Pyne said.

“The Super Hornet and Growler aircraft provide us with an enhanced multi-role air combat and electronic attack capability to protect Australia’s national security.

“As well as securing continued support for Australia's cutting edge air combat capability, this arrangement with General Electric provides jobs for dozens of Australians, and sets a base for GE to attract further work from around the world.

"It is just another example of the Turnbull government delivering on our commitment to use Australian defence industry whenever it is feasible to do so.”
