Indian Air Force To Evaluate Beechcraft T-6C Trainer

The Indian Air Force has scheduled an evaluation for Hawker Beechcraft Corporation's Beechcraft T-6C military trainer. The field evaluation trials will get underway October 11 at the Air Force Station Jamnagar in India. HBC is vying for a contract that specifies an initial purchase of 75 aircraft and options for follow-on orders that could eventually exceed 100 aircraft. A decision on the contract is anticipated in the coming months.

"The T-6C offers the Indian Air Force the world's most proven and cost-effective training system available," said Jim Maslowski, HBC president, U.S. and International Government Business. "It accommodates instruction in instrument flight procedures and basic aerial maneuvers and, including its predecessors the T-6A and T-6B, has accounted for more than 640 deliveries worldwide."

The T-6C is being considered as a replacement for the IAF's HPT-32 Deepak 2 trainer. The evaluations will be conducted over five days and consist of flights by IAF test and instructor pilots. HBC will also demonstrate the T-6C's maintainability as part of the evaluation.
