SIAI-Marchetti S211 Sweptwing Glass-cockpit Jet Trainer

Aircraft Details

Training Location: Arizona

Designed for all-attitude flight instruction of military aviators and offering strong aerodynamic and structural safety margins, our S211 jets offer the perfect platform for jet UPRT training. While the basic concepts of upset prevention and recovery training apply to all fixed-wing airplanes, turn rates and radius of turn vary with speed, and acceleration profiles and sustained load factors can be different between jet and piston aircraft. The economical turbofan powered SIAI-Marchetti S211 can be used for an entire training program or used for a single flight to experience the transfer of training between piston and jet aircraft. The S211 operates at speeds and altitudes emulating the performance range and capabilities of business jet aircraft.
