Title: Leadership

The vision of the F-35 Lightning II Program is to "deliver and sustain the most advanced, strike fighter aircraft to protect future generations worldwide."

The program was structured from the beginning to be a model of acquisition reform, with an emphasis on jointness, technology maturation, and concept demonstrations, and early cost-performance trades integral to the weapon system requirements definition process.

The F-35 Lightning II Program is a joint program with no lead service, staffed by Air Force, Navy, and Marine Corps personnel. The Program Executive Officer position alternates between the Departments of Navy and Air Force, and reports to the Service Acquisition Executive (SAE) of the other service. The Program Executive Officer is U.S. Air Force Lieutenant General Christopher C. Bogdan.
