This former Royal Air Force T-1 Folland Gnat is a great example of transonic aerodynamics designed by the world famous designer W.E.W. Petter.

This T.MK.1 is a real " Fast mover " jet as opposed to so many low performing high fuel consumption trainers on the market . It is very agile and if you cannot afford an F-16 this is the next best thing. The visibility is outstanding from both cockpits.

Dual instruction, export and worldwide delivery are available.

All trades considered.
