GROB G120TP

German manufacturer Grob, famed for its training aircraft, gliders and motorgliders of composite construction, has entered the basic turboprop trainer market with its G120TP, first flown in 2010 as a development of the piston-powered G120. The engine is the Rolls-Royce M250-B17F. So far the air forces of first Indonesia, then Argentina and Mexico have ordered the G120TP, which has a side-by-side seating configuration; Martin-Baker's new lightweight Mk17 ejector seats can be fitted. In addition, late last year came the announcement that the type will form part of the UK's future Military Flight Training System (MFTS) programme, the Affinity Group's bid involving the G120TP, Beechcraft T-6C Texan II and Embraer Phenom 100 having been selected. The Grob aircraft will provide the elementary training element.
