Manufacturer Description

The T-2 Buckeye was an intermediate budget trainer that gave US Navy pilots their first taste of jet-powered flight. It was primarily used by the Naval Air Training Command in conducting basic jet flight training for potential Navy and Marine Corps aviators. It trained over 11,000 students to pilot 18 various Navy jet aircraft, while maintaining an excellent record of safety and reliability. It was originally designed as a single-engine aircraft using the Westinghouse J34 series turbojet engine. Later versions appeared with more powerful engines, with the T-2B carrying twin Pratt & Whitney J6- turbojet engines and the T-2C carrying GE J85 engines. The GE J85 allowed for speeds of up to 521 mph, with a 910-mile range and a ceiling of 44,400 feet.
