Following on from their critically acclaimed Arrow III, Turbo Arrow III/IV and PA-28-161 Warrior II aircraft for X-Plane 11, this highly detailed simulation of the Hawk T1/A is being developed by Just Flight’s in-house team and Thranda Design following comprehensive, hands-on research with a real-life ex-RAF and ETPS Hawk T1.
The Hawk T1 is a British-built single engine jet trainer with a two-man tandem cockpit. First flown in 1974, the Hawk has served as an advanced training aircraft for nearly 40 years. The design has proved to be highly successful, with over 900 examples of more than 10 variants sold to air forces in 18 countries, including the UK, Finland, India and Saudi Arabia. This variant of the T1, first delivered to the RAF in 1976, continues to serve as an advanced jet and weapons trainer. Possibly the most well-known Hawk T1s are those flown by the world-famous RAF Red Arrows display team, which has been flying the Hawk T1 since 1979.
