RAF Trainer

The CT-155 Hawk is used by the Royal Canadian Air Force (RCAF) as a training jet. It is considered the most advanced fighter-trainer aircraft in the world.

The Hawk was built with seats for one student and an instructor, using, "Heads Up Display," hands-on throttle, stick controls and an integrated navigation system with weapon aiming.

Due to these technologies, the CT-155 can train students in a very wide array of combat scenarios.

In addition to the RCAF, the aircraft is used by the Royal Air Force, the United States Navy and 13 other countries to train their fighter pilots.
