It speaks volumes of the Hawks efficacy that the US chose it to train its Naval Aviators over a home grown product. Very few items of foreign military hardware ever get used by them, even when they are of superior quality.

I flew the company demonstrator Hawk in '89. A very nice advanced trainer, albeit with a few ergonomic quirks. Much preferred over the USN's T-45 Goshawk version - 10% heavier (beefed up for carrier ops), with 10% less power....do the math.

Do you have any comments about this aircraft ?
