Boeing and Saab this week completed the first flight of their all-new T-X aircraft, which is designed specifically for the U.S. Air Force’s training requirements. During the 55-minute flight, lead T-X Test Pilot Steven Schmidt and Chief Pilot for Air Force Programs Dan Draeger, who was in the seat behind Schmidt, validated key aspects of the single-engine jet and demonstrated the performance of the low-risk design.

 

 

With one engine, twin tails, stadium seating and an advanced cockpit with embedded training, the Boeing T-X is more affordable and flexible than older, existing aircraft. Boeing and Saab revealed their first two T-X aircraft in September. The second is currently in ground testing and expected to fly in early 2017.

  1. Despite that fact that this happened almost one year ago, i think it will be good aircraft, to train next generation of fighter pilots. Also it is quite nice replacement of the existing planes used for training military pilots. As i mentioned in

    today we need one or two such planes for NAVY and Air Force. I mean Lockheed Martin`s T-50 which is also quite good plane.
