Boeing Reveals First Two Aircraft for US Air Force T-X Competition

Boeing and its partner Saab AB will use their two production T-X aircraft to show the US Air Force the performance, affordability, and maintainability advantages of their approach.

Boeing T-X is an all-new aircraft designed specifically for the US Air Force training mission, and takes advantage of the latest technologies, tools and manufacturing techniques. It is an advanced aircraft designed to evolve as technologies, missions and training needs change. The design is more affordable and flexible than older, existing aircraft.

“Our T-X is real, ready and the right choice for training pilots for generations to come,” said Leanne Caret, President and CEO, Boeing Defence, Space & Security.

The Boeing T-X aircraft has one engine, twin tails, stadium seating and an advanced cockpit with embedded training. The system also offers state-of-the-art ground-based training and a maintenance-friendly design for long-term supportability.

“It’s an honour to build the future of air force training,” said Saab President and CEO Håkan Buskhe. “We have created the best solution thanks to great cooperation and a clear strategy since day one.”

T-X will replace the air force’s ageing T-38 aircraft. Initial operating capability is planned for 2024.
