The Navy also has pilots, maintainers and support staff at Eglin. Although no F-35Cs are at the base, maintainers are training on the other variants and pilots are going through the academic program and using flight simulators.

The first F-35C took off in Fort Worth, Texas, last month. Seven of the jets are scheduled arrive at Eglin in April.
