BAE Systems has teamed with Beechcraft and CAE to deliver the Air 5428 project – the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF’s) new pilot training system. 

The team will provide a total flight training solution that brings together BAE Systems’ extensive training, systems integration and sustainment capabilities; CAE’s leading simulation, training and support services; and Beechcraft’s renowned T-6C mission system. 

BAE Systems General Manager Aviation Solutions John Quaife said BAE Systems, Beechcraft and CAE will offer the ADF a strong, experienced and complementary team that understands the Australian environment and the training requirements of the Navy, Army and Air Force. 

“Since 1992, BAE Systems’ training specialists have helped deliver flight screening and basic flight training for the ADF,” Mr Quaife said. “Beechcraft and BAE Systems are also working together to support pilot training for the United States Navy on the T-6 mission system.”

“Designed to meet the needs of undergraduate pilot training for the United States, Canada and other NATO air forces, the T-6C has amassed more than two million flying hours and has proven its ability as a versatile, cost-effective platform. 

“CAE has extensive experience delivering and supporting T-6 training systems and proven partnerships with BAE Systems. The recent selection of CAE to provide three new full-mission simulators for the Hawk Lead-In Fighter is testament to its technical capability and local support it brings to the team.
