Boeing and Saab Reveal First Two T-X Aircraft

Boeing and Saab will use their two production T-X aircraft, revealed on Tuesday, to show the U.S. Air Force the performance, affordability, and maintainability advantages of their approach.

Boeing T-X is an all-new aircraft designed specifically for the U.S. Air Force training mission.

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

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.

"Its an honor to build the future of Air Force training," said Saab President and CEO Hkan Buskhe. "We have created the best solution thanks to great cooperation and a clear strategy since day one."

T-X will replace the Air Forces aging T-38 aircraft. Initial operating capability is planned for 2024.
