The Beechcraft T-6 Texan II is a single-engined turboprop, two-seat primary trainer designed to train Joint Primary Pilot Training (JPPT) students in basic flying skills common to U.S. Air Force and Navy pilots.
With broad training capabilities, cost effective operation and proven reliability, making it the ideal flight training solution for many other air force units around the world.
Stepped-tandem seating in the single cockpit places one crew member in front of the other, with the student and instructor positions being interchangeable. The aircraft is fully aerobatic and features a pressurized cockpit with an anti-G system, ejection seat and an advanced avionics package with sunlight-readable liquid crystal displays.
