Winner Of The Contract Will Sell 75 Aircraft To The IAF
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
