Flying in the T6 Texan II

Found pictures from when I got to fly the standard military fixed wing trainer the T6 Texan II. 1,100 HP turboprop that was an absolute dream to fly.

On the way back down.

They let me fly it a little while operating in a MOA. I did a Immelmann, barrel roll, and Immelmann+aileron roll+ split S. The PIC also showed me a spin which is where I started feeling sick πŸ˜… lost 5,000’ in 15 seconds. Did a few more maneuvers in a nearby city.

Man I hope I’ll be doing just that in about 5 years.

Must’ve been an exhilarating ride to fly in one of those T-6’s. I love the turboprop roar the T-6 II makes too.

Hopefully! Just have to be competitive for a pilot slot.

It’s a good sound for sure, not too loud but not quiet either
