Beechraft T-6Cs May Train British Pilots

Beechraft T-6Cs May Train British Pilots

The next generation of British military pilots will be taught their basic flying skills on a Beechcraft T-6C trainer if a deal between Ascent Flight Training and an Israeli-US industry consortium known as Affinity conclude final negotiations.

Ascent, the Lockheed Martin-Babcock partnership responsible for the UK military flying training systems (UKMFTS) program, has selected the Elbit Systems/KBR Affinity team as preferred bidder for the fixed-wing aircraft service provider element of the scheme.

Affinity and Ascent have already been in exclusive discussions for more than a year after rival bidders were ejected from the competition late last summer.
