Who We Are
The F-35 Lightning II is more than a leading-edge 5th generation stealth fighter. It's an aircraft with unprecedented capabilities that will help America and its allies defend freedom for decades to come. In parallel, it's an advanced technology program set firmly as the cornerstone of our nation’s industrial base. Our team - 32,500 strong - lives and works in communities in 46 states across the U.S. We are engineers, manufacturers, maintainers, and pilots as well as those who support production with accounting, planning, supply chain management and more. From coast to coast and across the heartland of America, we’re working to produce the world’s only 5th Generation multirole stealth fighter that is second to none. It’s what we do. It’s who we are.
