The Indian Air Force (IAF) will begin field evaluation trials of Hawker Beechcraft Corporation’s (HBC) T-6C military trainer aircraft today at Air Force Station Jamnagar in India.
The IAF will initially acquire 75 trainer aircraft with options to acquire 100 such aircraft to replace its HPT-32 Deepak 2 trainer.

The T-6C aircraft includes an integrated glass cockpit and an advanced avionics suite that significantly increases advanced training opportunities.
The aircraft also includes a head-up display, up-front control panel, three multifunction displays and hands-on throttle and stick controls.
