Advanced pilot training system T-X

U.S. Air Force selects Saab and Boeing T-X trainer

 

The U.S. Air Force has awarded Boeing for the development of a new advanced pilot training system that will help train fighter and bomber pilots for generations to come.

 

“This selection allows our two companies to deliver on a commitment we jointly made nearly five years ago,” says Håkan Buskhe, President and CEO of Saab. “It is a major accomplishment for our partnership with Boeing and our joint team, and I look forward to delivering the first trainer aircraft to the U.S. Air Force.

 

Saab and Boeing designed, developed, and flight-tested two all new, purpose-built jets – proving out the system’s design and repeatability in manufacturing and training capability.
