The Texan II came out of a long process of finding a replacement for the Cessna T-37 Tweet. The Tweet went into service in 1957 and served an incredible 52 years until it was finally retired in 2009. The Tweet was an incredible airframe, which was also pressed into service as an observation platform and close air support (CAS) aircraft in Vietnam. But you can’t say enough great things about a jet that ushered in the jet age and provided pilots for four of five Air Force fighter generations. The Texan II is the primary flight training aircraft for the U.S. Air Force UPT and Navy Flight Training. Once the primary stage is complete, pilots move on to either a fighter/bomber track, which operates the T-38 Talon, or the heavy track, which flies the Raytheon T-1A Jayhawk, which is little more than a Hawker 400. The Navy is a little different. Their intermediate tracks either head over the T-45 Goshawk for fighter tracks, or the T-44 Pegasus, a King Air A100 (soon to be King Air 260s, called the T-54).The PT6A is the most popular turboprop engine of all time, and that is not diminishing. The T-6 uses this great engine, which is a common powerplant with the King Air/C-12 Huron series. This reduces overall costs since they will share some common parts. We want to help you set up your logistics train for your T-6 operations so that your fleet of Texans will continue operating at the highest level for years to come.
