German aircraft manufacturer Grob Aircraft and Elbit Systems, the Israeli specialist in electronic defense, have signed several agreements to partner in the development of a new family of trainer aircraft called the G-120TP. The aircraft will be based on a modular concept, which will result in one aircraft in three different configurations: side-by-side, tandem-seat and a four-seat models. All three will maintain maximum commonality, thus guaranteeing high operating cost effectiveness.

The G-120TP will be manufactured and marketed by Grob and will feature an Elbit avionics suite, which includes a glass cockpit with a high level of mission simulation capability incorporating virtual tactical training.
