The Hawk legacy, and the decades of experience we have acquired through its evolution, has positioned the next generation of Hawk as a leading contender to join the U.S. Air Force fleet. 

In 2010 the U.S. Air Force initiated the T-X Competition, their program to replace the T-38 Talon with a proven, off-the-shelf solution The T-X aircraft will be the lead-in trainer for some of the most advanced frontline aircraft in the world; the F-35 Lightning II, the F-22 Raptor and the B-2 Spirit. 

 

United we stand

Today, we are a key member of the T-X Capture Team led by Northrop Grumman, which is offering Hawk and its fully-integrated family of systems to the U.S. Air Force.

With L-3 selected as the ground based training and simulation partner, and Rolls-Royce selected for propulsion, Northrop Grumman is leading a team with unrivaled experience in training, aircraft development and production.

Together this team brings over 160 combined years of pilot training experience and has built more than 2,500 training aircraft worldwide, more than any other industry team.

For the past four years we have worked closely with our partners and the U.S. Air Force customer to evolve the T-X solution and create the most comprehensive, advanced training system in the world.

Hawk is already training future F-35 pilots for the Royal Air Force, Canada, Australia, the U.S. Navy and U.S. Marine Corps. Staying true to its legacy, Hawk continues to be the combat pilot training system that is breaking ground in the air.
