EDM provides unique high fidelity F-35B cockpit simulator with an integrated motion system to BAE Systems

21 March 2017

The new British aircraft, F-35B Lightning II, takes part in it's first UK photo shoot. The F-35 jet has only just made it's first transatlantic crossing and will be displayed at the Royal International Air Tattoo and the Farnborough Air Show in the next few weeks. The Lightning II, which is capable of short take off and vertical landing, will enter service with the RAF and the Royal Navy in 2018. Photographs by SAC Mark Parkinson, RAF Leeming, 1st July 2016.

Last year we manufactured a high fidelity F-35B cockpit simulator for BAE Systems. In this video, F-35B Lead Test Pilot at BAE Systems, Pete ‘Wizzer’ Wilson, discusses how the simulator is being used to validate the F-35B’s flying and handling characteristics as part of the certification process for introducing the aircraft into service on board the UK’s new Queen Elizabeth class aircraft carriers, HMS Queen Elizabeth and HMS Prince of Wales.
