AEDC F135 engine test team reaches important milestone

AEDC’s John Kelly and Jeff Dodd inspect the F135 engine that will power the short takeoff/vertical landing (STOVL) variant of the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. Kelly, AEDC’s Navy project manager on the recently completed F135 engine milestone test, and Dodd, Aerospace Testing Alliance’s project manager on the test entry, were proud to play a role in the test, a milestone in the JSF program. This successfully completed test brings this Initial Service Release F135 engine closer to being certified by the government for flight testing and subsequent use in the fleet.
