Lockheed T-50A completes 100 flights
Built to meet requirements for the US Air Force's Advanced Pilot Training competition, the aircraft has been developed to train pilots for the F-22 Raptor and F-35 Lightning II fighters.
Flight operations began at the Greenville site in November 2016 ahead of the March 2017 proposal deadline and submission of the required flight test data at the end of June.
Doug Batista, T-50A program director, said: ‘We have met the US Air Force flight test requirements for the proposal, however our flight operations team continues to produce a regular rhythm of sorties to keep the pilots proficient, the aircraft operational and ensure we are prepared to ramp up operations on day one of a decision.'
The T-50A aircraft is being offered along with the accompanying T-50A Ground-Based Training System, an immersive, synchronised ground-based training platform.
