Italian FACO for the F-35


Published on

The Italians have made significant, long-term commitments to the JSF program.

They accepted the challenge; more importantly they acknowledge it as a challenge. And are doing everything they can to lean forward as a country, both industry and government, to make both Italy and more importantly the JSF program successful.

SLD: Because the F-35 is a global program, what might be the impact of the Italian effort on others?

White: Japan is looking seriously at the Italian model and the possibility of setting up a FACO in Japan. They have already visited Italy to look at the approach and to think about a similar site in Japan.
