Scottish Aviation Bulldog T.1

The Scottish Aviation Bulldog served as the Royal Air Force elementary training aircraft until the late-1990s. Its twin side-by-side seating provided an ideal environment for student pilots to be taught the fundamental skills needed to operate military aircraft in the next stage of their training. The aircraft's reliable engineering and excellent handling qualities made it a useful asset in UK service but also prompted significant export success; serving in countries such as Sweden, Malaysia, Nigeria and Jordan, amongst others. It was replaced in RAF service by the Grob Tutor, which can also be seen in the RIAT 2014 static display.
