The Future of Cockpit Design

The T-6C Texan II empowers pilots to see the whole picture. The state-of-the-art, all-digital, open-architecture glass cockpit offers the crystal clear visibility necessary for completing complex missions. The best training requires advanced total situational awareness. The T-6C flight deck features the technology needed to keep pilots safe and enhance their ability to train.

Today’s T-6C Texan II flight deck features include:

  • Three interchangeable color active-matrix, liquid-crystal multi-function displays driven by two avionics computers
  • Primary flight display, navigation, engine-indicating and crew-alerting systems, programmable mission functions, such as tactical situation displays, MIL-STD 1787 head-up display with F-16 or F/A-18 selectable display capabilities
  • Total integration of critical instruments, navigation and advanced weapons training skills
  • A back-up, all-in-one flight instrument, which combines all essential flight cues in one easy-to-read display

Environmental Control System

Staying comfortable is vital to flight training.

Advanced environmental control system:

  • Keeps the cabin pressurized
  • Maintains a comfortable cockpit temperature on the ground and in flight
  • Provides anti-G capability for safe high performance of the aircraft

Training Ready

Textron Aviation Defense offers the largest, most successful flight training system in the world. Each training system is designed specifically for the mission you fly. Our T-6C simulators are ideal for training cockpit and emergency procedures – all in a safe, controlled, efficient environment.

The T-6C training system:

- Delivers proven customizable training courseware
- Includes media-integrated training lectures
- Uses computer-based training and management systems

  • Desktop Avionics Trainer

    A large touch-screen computer hosts the T-6B/C avionics and displays the three multifunction displays and up-front control panel, allowing students to use the same systems and receive the same result as in the aircraft.

  • Egress Procedures Trainer

    The egress procedures trainer replicates the forward cockpit, ejection seat and canopy and includes pilot restraints, oxygen and G-suit hookups for practice of entry, egress and emergency egress procedures.

  • Ejection Seat Trainer

    The ejection seat trainer is a realistic replica of the Martin-Baker MKUS16LA ejection seat, and it instructs pilots in correct hook up and removal of restraint and life-support systems without use of more expensive assets.

  • Civil Support/Consequence Management

    The instrument flight training device provides the same cockpit layout and performance of the OFT with a direct-view 45 degrees by 33 degrees field-of-view forward visual display.

  • Operational Flight Trainer (OFT)

    OFT replicates cockpit layout and aircraft performance with a domed 270 degrees by 70 degrees wide-field-of-view system and a single axis dynamic seat that provides tactical simulation of flight movements and sensations.

  • Unit Training Device

    Unit training provides the same cockpit and performance as the OFT, including normal ground and flight training procedures, basic instruments, emergency procedures training, but does not include a dynamic seat.
