Beechcraft has won a contract from Mexico to supply two T-6C Texan trainers for the nation’s navy.

 

The aircraft, designated T-6C+ models, will be delivered "this summer", Beechcraft says.

 

Beechcraft, a division of Textron, says it is also working on a contract to provide two years of parts support, pilot and mechanic training and field support to the Mexican navy.

 

The aircraft will have glass cockpits with Esterline CMC Cockpit 4000 avionics, which include flight management systems and a global positioning system certificated by the US Federal Aviation Administration, says Beechcraft.

 

The Mexican air force already has six T-6s, and has placed an order for an additional six aircraft, according to Flightglobal’s MiliCAS database.
