Wright-Patterson AFB Selected as F-35 Support Organization Base

The U.S. Air Force is looking to station the F-35 Lightning II Hybrid Product Support Integrator organization at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base.

The HPSI organization provides product support for all F-35 users including joint and international customers, USAF said Tuesday.

"Wright-Patterson Air Force Base has the trained acquisition professionals with the right fighter aircraft experience to run this organization for DoD’s Joint Program Office," said Heather Wilson, secretary of the Air Force.

The organization works to globally support the entirety of the aircraft's supply chain, maintenance and sustainment activities, logistics information technology and training.

USAF will decide on the organization's final location after conducting a requisite environmental analysis.

The service branch also considers Robins AFB as a potential alternative location for HPSI.
