Lockheed Martin completes T-50A configured plane's test flight
Lockheed Martin successfully completed the initial flight test of its T-50A configured aircraft, offered in the U.S. Air Force’s Advanced Pilot Training competition.
“The aircraft in its new configuration with the 5th Gen cockpit and other upgrades performed flawlessly,” said Mark Ward, Lockheed Martin T-50A lead test pilot, after his flight in Sacheon, South Korea. “I have no doubt this aircraft will close the gap which currently exists between the trainer fleet and 5th Generation fighters.”
T-50A training jet is developed jointly by Lockheed Martin and Korea Aerospace Industries. It builds on the heritage of the T-50 with more than 100 T-50s flying today—100,000 flight hours and counting—and more than 1,000 pilots trained.
