The second T-50A configured aircraft built by Lockheed Martin and Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) has taken flight, completing a test flight in Sacheon, South Korea. 

The T-50A is being offered to meet the requirements of the US Air Force’s Advanced Pilot Training (APT) competition.

The initial test flight of the first T-50A took place in June, and the Lockheed Martin assembly and training operations centre in Greenville, South Carolina, is nearing completion.

The T-50A has been developed jointly by Lockheed Martin and KAI. The aircraft is being offered along with the accompanying T-50A Ground-Based Training System, an immersive, synchronised ground-based training platform.
