Known as the Lightning II, the world's most expensive Joint Strike Fighter plane has been a long time coming. A project that dates right back to 1996, the maiden flight for the F-35 was in December 2006 and with a plethora of adjustments, tweaks and re-designs, the first aircraft was delivered in July 2011, but Lockheed Martin's jewel in the aviation crown was not fully operational with a squadron until July 2015.
This is the one and only F-35 flight simulator in the UK available for the public.
Inside the real thing the cockpit is more like an IT laboratory, with a full panel width glass touchscreen replacing all those dials, gauges and knobs you expect to see in an aircraft cockpit. The simulated version of the F-35 is the same.
Flight includes engine start up, taxi, take off, general handling, approach and landing.
Learn to control the aircraft in hover mode; perform short takeoffs, landings and aircraft carrier landings.
On this experience you'll be able to test the aircraft to the max as you fly at a mind-bending Mach 1.2.
At the end you will recieve a certificate of achievement.
