Description: The Hawker Beechcraft T-6 Texan II is a single-turboprop engine, tandem two-seat primary trainer designed to train students in basic flying skills common to US Air Force (USAF) and US Navy pilots. The T-6 Texan II derived from the Raytheon's Beech/Pilatus PC-9 Mk II turboprop trainer. The United States Joint Services awarded the Joint Primary Aircraft Training System (JPATS) contract to Raytheon (now Hawker Beechcraft Corporation) in 1996. The T-6A Texan II achieved initial operational capability as a training system in 2001.

The Beechcraft T-6B truborpop is an improved version of the T-6A aircraft featuring an open architecture advanced avionics suite that reflects font-line fighter trends: Head-Up Display (HUD), Up Front Control Panel (UFCP), Multi-Function Displays (MFDs) and Hand On Throttle And Stick (HOTAS). The T-6B retains the low operating and maintenance costs from T-6A training system while delivering advanced concepts and skills so far only available through more expensive advanced trainers powered by turbofans. The T-6B nearly doubles the student number of effective training hours to 180 compared with the T-6A.
