The Hawk T1, built by BAE Systems, is a single-engine fast jet, designed by Hawker Siddeley in 1974. This marvel of engineering is part of the Hawk family, with over 1,000 being built, and was first introduced in 1976 by the Royal Air Force as an interceptor aircraft. The Hawk also played an important role as a fast jet trainer for many Air Forces around the world, serving as far away as Australia. Nowadays, the Hawk T1 is more recognisable as the bird of choice for the Royal Air Force’s Red Arrows display team.

With a maximum flat-out speed of 560 knots and a service ceiling of 48,000ft, the BAE Systems Hawk is certainly a capable jet and a beauty to behold. In this review, I’ll be looking into the details behind Just Flight’s latest Hawk addon for X-Plane 11 (Developed in conjunction with Thranda Design) and exploring all of the joy this plane has to offer.
