$44,000 per flight hour cost for F35A

The Pentagon’s cost assessment office doesn’t believe the F-35 program office can achieve a “stretch goal” of getting the "A" model’s cost per flying hour to $25,000by fiscal 2025, its director said Thursday.
“The department doesn’t see a path to get to $25,000 dollars per flying hour by FY25,” said Robert Daigle, the outgoing head of the Cost Assessment and Program Evaluation office, during a House Armed Services subcommittee hearing. “There are a fair number of studies going on right now that are going to provide some more information on that, but that’s a target and it’s not our projection for where we’re actually going to be.”

One of the F-35′s cost goals may be unattainable

That is mind boggling. war is very expensive.

Avoiding war is very expensive, as well.

Freedom isn't free.

In fact it costs a whole bunch.

But, it's better than war...
