Sophisticated Cockpit

The F-35 provides its pilot with unsurpassed situational awareness, positive target identification and precision strike under any weather condition. Mission systems integration and outstanding over-the-nose visibility features are designed to dramatically enhance pilot performance.

The F-35's cockpit has:

  • A 20- by 8-inch glass cockpit touchscreen
  • An Adacel cockpit speech-recognition system, a first for an operational US fixed-wing aircraft
