Design and development

The Boeing T-X is a single-engined advanced jet-trainer with a twin tail, tandem seating, and a retractable tricycle landing gear. The aircraft is powered by a General Electric F404 afterburning turbofan engine.[2] The twin-tails provide better stability and control and the aircraft is capable of in-flight refueling using the boom and receptacle (or called the flying boom system).[citation needed]

The Boeing T-X with related ground-based training and support is being developed and offered by Boeing with its Swedish aerospace group partner, Saab for the U.S. Air Force T-X program to replace the Northrop T-38 Talon for pilot training.[3] Boeing and Saab signed a partnership agreement for the USAF T-X competition on 6 December 2013.[4]

The aircraft was first revealed on 13 September 2016.[5] The first BTX-1 aircraft flew on 20 December 2016.[6][7]
