WARTON, UK (BNS): The US Navy has celebrated the major milestone of completing over one million flying hours in the T-45 Goshawk.

The T-45, part of the BAE Systems Hawk family is the only jet trainer designed to operate from an aircraft carrier. Over 900 Hawk aircraft have been sold, or are on order, the company said.

The rear and centre fuselage sections, wing assembly and vertical tails for the T-45 Goshawk aircraft come from Bae Systems.

Working in partnership with Boeing, the company continues to provide engineering, logistics and support equipment to the US Navy for their fleet of 221 aircraft.

According to BAE Systems, the Hawk produces less noise and has lower acquisition, operating and support costs than any other advanced jet trainer.
