Mission: The T-43A is a medium-range, swept-wing jet aircraft equipped with modern navigation and communications equipment to train navigators for strategic and tactical aircraft.
Features: The T-43A is the Air Force version of the Boeing 737 transport. One jet engine is mounted under each wing. The exterior differences between the military and commercial aircraft include many small blade-type antennas, sextant ports, a wire antenna for a high-frequency radio and fewer windows.
Inside each T-43A training compartment are two minimum proficiency, two maximum proficiency and 12 student stations. Two stations form a console and instructors can move their seats to the consoles and sit beside students for individual instruction.
The large cabin allows easy access to seating and storage, yet reduces the distance between student stations and instructor positions.
The student-training compartment is equipped with advanced avionics gear identical to Air Force operational aircraft. The equipment includes mapping radar, very high frequency omnidirectional range and tactical air navigation radio systems; inertial navigation systems; radar altimeter and all required communication equipment.
