The Royal Australian Air Force has embarked on an exciting era as No. 3 Squadron now has its first F-35A Joint Strike Fighter.
A capability as complex as the F-35A Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) isn’t something you buy, deliver, fly and forget about.
An Australian F-35A aircraft dropped two inert GBU-31v3 Joint Direct Attack Munition (JDAM) weapons for the first time on July 20, marking a ground-breaking step in the evolution of Air Force’s fifth-generation strike capability.
TAE Aerospace will develop a Turbine Engine Maintenance Facility (TEMF) in Bundamba, south-east Queensland, which will support in-country sustainment of Australia’s fifth-generation F-35A Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) aircraft.
Support equipment critical to successful F-35A Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) operations in Australia has started appearing at RAAF Base Williamtown as the countdown to the arrival of our first two aircraft gains pace.
Victorian-based company Marand Precision Engineering has delivered its 50th Vertical Tail in support of the global F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Program, demonstrating the strength of Australia’s defence industry in a competitive global market.
Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) Division engineers are working hard in the lead-up to an Airworthiness Board in August to ensure the Australian F-35A JSF is successfully certified before the arrival of our first two aircraft in December.
Australia’s first two F-35A aircraft to be permanently based at RAAF Base Williamtown are on schedule to arrive in December and a substantial body of work is happening behind the scenes to make sure the aircraft can successfully operate in Australia.
