Preparing a Lucky Few to Fly and Maintain the F-35 Lightning II
The F-35 Lightning II offers blistering speeds, superior stealth capability, unmatched power and flexibility. Before pilots and maintainers join an elite group of those qualified to operate these 5th generation strike fighters, they must first master the skills to maximize the aircraft’s capability.
The F-35 Lightning II Pilot and Maintenance Training systems are designed to blend a variety of training media to create a total training solution for the F-35 weapon system. The fully-integrated training center at Eglin Air Force Base, Fla., is the master Joint Strike Fighter training base for all aircrews and maintenance personnel. Students train using the latest courseware, electronic classrooms, simulators, flight events and event-based maintenance training. Shared resources across the training domain means even greater affordability for the partner nations on the program.
