The future is now. There is a new era in military aviation: the F-22 Raptor and the F-35 Lightning II – the world’s only 5th Generation Fighters. These modern aircraft require pilot skills that current trainers cannot address. The T-50 delivers a total advanced training system that will bridge the gap between basic flight training and high-performance fighters. It is the trainer aircraft that will introduce a new generation of pilots to the power of modern, advanced fighters.
Today’s pilots demand a higher degree of training effectiveness. The T-50 system achieves this through embedded onboard training that allows students to readily grasp the operational training concepts and essence of the pilot/machine interface; before, during and after each flight.
As the leader in 5th Generation Fighter development, Lockheed Martin, in partnership with Korea Aerospace Industries, brings the experience and leadership to support the next generation of pilots.
