Lockheed-Martin estimates that production of the F-35, at their highly automated Fort Worth facility, can reach about 230 aircraft a year. Aircraft have not been built in the United States in such large quantities as quickly since World War II.

The United States government sees the Lockheed F-35 project as a program that is too big to be allowed to fail, due to its employment of workers, spread throughout the country, and around the world. The Center for International Policy issued a report stating that the 125,000 U.S. jobs created claimed by Lockheed is incorrect. The actual number is about half that.

A number of countries planning to purchase the F-35 have made no secret that a large factor in their decision will be the amount of new business and the number of jobs created rather than if the aircraft actually meets their defense needs.
