Development

Entwicklung

The T-6 is a development of the Pilatus PC-9, modified significantly by Beechcraft in order to enter the Joint Primary Aircraft Training System (JPATS) competition in the 1990s.The JPATS competition winning design was based on a commercial off the shelf Pilatus PC-9, with minor modifications. Additional requirements and conflicts between the Air Force and the Navy resulted in delays, cost increases (from initial estimates of $3.9 to roughly $6 million per aircraft) and a completely new aircraft that is 22 % or 1,100 lbs heavier than the Pilatus.

Operational history

Einsatzgeschichte

 

The T-6A also replaced all T-34Cs with Training Air Wing 6 at Naval Air Station Pensacola in early 2005. T-6Bs began replacing T-34Cs as the primary trainer with Training Air Wing 5 at NAS Whiting Field in the late summer of 2009 and the installation will operate both aircraft as it transitions over the next few years. Training Air Wing 4 at NAS Corpus Christi will continue to operate the T-34C as the primary trainer, with the arrival of the T-6B scheduled for that location in 2012. On 18 May 2010 Training Wing 5 had the first training flight of a T-6B.
