Today, Stirling is a market leader in active control technology and we are the sole supplier of the F-35 pilot training stick and throttle systems for Lockheed Martin. We have also gone on to specialise in simulation and analysis for extreme environments, where our expertise lies in the development of condition monitoring systems. On the services side of the business, Stirling is the UK’s largest independent landing gear specialist and since 2009, our Control Technologies team run a major aerospace customer's materials laboratory where our engineers provide on-site laboratory support.
