Conventional Takeoff and Landing (CTOL) – International

A truly partnered project, the F-35 program draws on the expertise from nine countries, using global relationships to make manufacturing and sustainment more efficient and helping strengthen alliances among nations. Wing production has begun in Italy. Turkey has delivered components for the center fuselage. Norway, the Netherlands and Denmark have delivered control surfaces and edges. On-site support will manage delivery schedules and ensure efficient transfer of approved technologies to industrial participation countries.
