              Boeing is proud to serve the U.S. Air Force by providing its new advanced pilot training system.

              Boeing offered the only all-new system purpose-built for the U.S. Air Force training mission – with aircraft, ground based training and support designed together from the start. Proven in manufacturing and flight test, our new, flexible design meets all requirements and can evolve as technologies, missions and training needs change.

              We've also taken advantage of the latest technologies, tools and manufacturing techniques. Thanks to top suppliers including Saab, Triumph Group, General Electric, Collins Aerospace and L3 Technologies, Boeing T-X will be more than 90% made in America and support more than 17,000 U.S. jobs in 34 states.

              Boeing T-X: the right choice for training generations of future fighter and bomber pilots for decades to come.
