RAF BAE Systems Hawk T.2

The Hawk T.2 is a fully aerobatic, low wing, transonic, 2-seat training aircraft with mission avionics that are representative of front-line aircraft. It is used to train pilots for Tornado GR.4, Typhoon and F-35 Lighting II. The Hawk has tandem seats, with full controls available in the front and rear cockpit. Duplication of essential controls with appropriate override facilities is provided in the rear cockpit, for example store jettison, landing gear and flaps. The aircraft's 'glass cockpit' avionics suite provides a realistic advanced fast jet training platform. It allows trainees to be immersed in the more complex tactical environments.
