T-100Raytheon has teamed up with CAE, Finmeccanica and Honeywell to introduce the T-100 training jet as part of their efforts to compete for the U.S. Air Force“™s T-X trainer aircraft program.

The T-100 aircraft is a variant of the Alenia Aermacchi-built M-346 training jet and comes with a ground-based training platform, Raytheon said Monday.

Gene Colabatistto, group president for defense and security at CAE, said the T-100 system and integrated simulation platforms aim to provide training capabilities for the service branch“™s fighter jet pilots.

Honeywell’s aerospace business will supply F124 twin-turbofan engines for the training jet through International Turbine Engine Co., Honeywell“™s joint venture with Aerospace Industrial Development Corp.

The service branch released in March 2015 the key performance requirements for the T-X trainer program that seeks to replace its fleet of T-38 planes.

These requirements include aircraft sustainment and simulator visual acuity and performance.
