T-6A TEXAN II (JPATS), USA

The US Navy and the US Air Force selected the Beech Pilatus PC-9 Mark II, now named the T-6A Texan II, as the Joint Primary Aircraft Training System (JPATS). The T-6A Texan II, manufactured by Raytheon Aircraft in Wichita (a subsidiary of Raytheon Company), is a primary trainer that will also accommodate instruction in advanced aerial and air-to-ground manoeuvres. The aircraft is capable of providing over 155 hours of training, including weapons delivery training.

The Pilatus PC-9 was a proven high performance turboprop trainer in operation with the Air Forces of Australia, Union of Burma, Cyprus, Saudi Arabia and Switzerland. The major differences between the T-6A Texan II and the PC-9 are: a more powerful engine, a computer controlled trim aid device, a Martin Baker zero-zero ejection seat, single point refuelling, a 270 knot bird resistant canopy and pressurised cockpit.

Since winning the JPATS competition, first deliveries of the aircraft were made in 2000 to the USAF. 167 low-rate initial production (LRIP) aircraft have been ordered (30 for USN, 137 for USAF) with initial operating capability (IOC) achieved in October 2001 for the Air Force and August 2003 for the Navy. A contract for full-rate production of 230 aircraft was placed in January 2002. Over 140 aircraft have been delivered. The JPATS program has a scheduled requirement for the US Navy to receive 328 aircraft and the USAF 454, with deliveries continuing to 2017. The aircraft are to replace USAF T-37B and USN T-34C aircraft.

An international version of the aircraft is being marketed worldwide and 24 aircraft have been delivered to the NATO Flying Training School in Canada. 45 aircraft have been ordered by the Hellenic Air Force in Greece, all of which have been delivered.

COCKPIT

Access to the cockpit is through the side-opening, single piece canopy and windscreen. The canopy and windscreen are bird-strike resistant at speeds up to 270 knots. Seating is in a stepped tandem configuration. The pressurised cockpit is equipped with sunlight readable Smiths Aerospace multifunction active matrix liquid crystal displays.

The aircraft has a through the canopy ejection system with a Martin Baker Mark US16LA zero/zero ejection seat.

TRIM AID DEVICE

A high powered, single engine turboprop aircraft normally requires extensive rudder control by the pilot, and most trainee pilots graduate to jet aircraft where engine torque is not a factor. In order to reduce the need for rudder control on the T-6A, the Trim Aid Device was developed and patented by Raytheon Aircraft. The device reduces the need for excessive rudder trim by balancing the trim requirements, using the aircraft's pitch rate, air speed, altitude and engine setting to set the rudder trim tab position even in aerobatic manoeuvres. The Trim Aid Device is installed in the aft avionics bay.

WEAPONS

The aircraft has six underwing hardpoints, three on each side for carrying air-to-air and air-to-ground weapons systems. The centre station on each side is "wet" for external fuel tanks.

ENGINE

The aircraft uses a Pratt and Whitney Canada PT6A-68 turboprop engine which provides a flat rated 1100 standard horsepower. The range of the aircraft is more than 1,667km.

The powerplant provides an initial climb rate in excess of 3,300ft/min and the aircraft climbs to 18,000ft in under 6mins. The maximum cruise speed of the aircraft is 500km/h and the altitude ceiling 9,500m. The aircraft demonstrates sustained turn performance of 2g at an altitude of 22,000ft.

POWER MANAGEMENT UNIT

The aircraft is equipped with the Power Management Unit (PMU), a highly advanced digital electronic engine control unit. The PMU, developed by Raytheon and Pratt and Whitney Canada, sets the engine power in response to the setting of the pilot's power control lever and to the ambient pressure and temperature. The control functions of the power management unit make it impossible for a trainee pilot to over-torque the engine. The power management unit recognises the conditions which could potentially result in flameout (cessation of combustion in the engine) and automatically provides ignition in the event of sudden decreases in speed or in the interstage turbine temperature.

The Propeller Interface Unit (PIU) is an electro-mechanical control unit mounted to the engine reduction gearbox, which provides a propeller speed signal to the PMU and responds to speed control signals from the PMU. The PIU provides overspeed protection via a mechanical overspeed governor.

Wow, yet another tale of bad judgement leading to an aviation tragedy. Thanks for posting this link. Stories like this are a reminder of why one can't afford cockiness in risky situations.

The Sabbath is Saturday. I'm working today too, but from home. Writing policy is not my favorite thing, but it has to be done because a contractor who wasn't even qualified to do it already botched the job and I get to fix his mess.

My old office used to overlook Bush 41's home in Houston. I haven't had a view since.

Remember the Alamo, and God Bless Texas...

I have no at-work photos.

However, I did have a fairly decent view from my apartment when I lived in NYC many years ago. (It was especially nice of a night time - other than when they illuminated the Empire State Building with gay liberation colored lights ).
