Taiwan's Advanced Jet Training Plane Completes First Taxi Test 4 June, 2020

Taiwan's first locally developed advanced jet training aircraft, the AIDC T-5 Brave Eagle, successfully completed the taxi test. The platform produced by Aerospace Industrial Development Corp (AIDC) conducted its first pre-flight test at Ching Chuan Kang Air Base.

Covid-19 did not affect the testing process, company officials said, before the first flight, two or three more times before the platform will undergo taxi tests.  AIDC plans to deliver 66 AT-5s to the air force by 2026 to replace the AT-3s, which the air force plans to retire.

Stating that COVID-19 does not affect the testing process, the company officials announced that the platform will conduct two or three more taxi trials before the first flight.
