WICHITA, KANSAS (BNS): Beechcraft Corporation has received an initial order from the Mexican Navy Secretaría de Marina (SEMAR) for two T-6C+ military trainers.

This purchase represents the first step in modernising the Mexican Navy's fixed-wing aviation fleet and follows a recent expansion of the Mexican Air Force training fleet to include 12 T-6C+ aircraft.

The Navy trainers are scheduled for delivery in the summer of 2014.

In addition to the aircraft, Beechcraft's Global Mission Support organization is working on a second contract with SEMAR that is expected to include two years of parts support, training for pilots and mechanics, and the placement of Field Service Representatives who will provide technical expertise and training to maintenance personnel.

The T-6C+ features a hard-point wing, Heads-Up Display, Up-Front Control Panel, an integrated glass cockpit and an advanced Esterline CMC Cockpit 4000 avionics suite that greatly expands advanced training opportunities.

The systems are integrated with a Hands-On Throttle and Stick (HOTAS), providing the student pilot and instructor with a simpler interface to the digital cockpit.
