Two/three-seat fully-aerobatic light training aircraft
Seen in the old house colours, VH-YCF was one of the original batch of aircraft purchased new by BAE Systems in 1991.
The Pacific Aerospace CT-4B Airtrainer is not a new aircraft, but it is perfectly suited to the flight training task and is fully aerobatic.
Students and instructors taxi their CT-4Bs out to Tamworth's purpose-built parallel runways for a morning training flight.
Painted in the new simplified colour scheme, CT-4B VH-YCV undergoes maintenance at Tamworth. BAE Systems is almost completely self-sufficient with regard to maintenance.
The AESL CT/4 Airtrainer has been developed from the company's well-known Airtourer as a military trainer. Among its new features are the hinged canopy, shown open in this illustration, and a new, streightened wing provision for carrying rockets, bombs and fuel tanks.

BAE Systems has acquired CT-4Bs from a number of sources and has brought them all up to an identical, if somewhat basic, cockpit configuration.
