Boeing and Swedish automotive manufacturing company Saab have partnered up to develop an innovative and high-tech military training aircraft that is designed to empower young pilots with the training and experience they need to be able to take to the skies for defense missions.
The T-X aircraft is designed to specifically prepare pilots for duty in the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II environments, among others. What's great about this training aircraft is that it has been 'future-proofed', thanks to flexible technological architecture that can be upgraded and evolved as technology moves forward.
This training aircraft features a single-engine setup and an advanced cockpit for exceptionally immersive training, and features a structure and engineering setup that makes it easy to maintain and repair.
While aircraft devoted to military campaigns receive all the attention, training aircraft play a crucial role in preparing pilots for duty, which is why the T-X aircraft is such an important development.
