combat mission


Aerobatic training aircraft built for the military to train pilots before moving onto fast jets.  They were used by the RAF between 1995 and 2010, and are still currently in use by several air forces round the world.

The T67 Firefly has a tricycle undercarriage with one wheel on the nose and two behind on the wings.  Unusually for side-by-side light aircraft, T67M260s were produced to be flown solo from the right-hand seat to allow student pilots to immediately get used to the left-hand throttle found in most military aircraft.

Ultimate High operates 3x T67 Slingsby Firefly.
