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.
