The Cessna T-37 is a twin-engine trainer used for teaching the fundamentals of jet aircraft operation, and instrument, formation and night flying. Widely known as the Tweety Bird or Tweet, it has been a primary trainer for the United States Air Force (USAF) for decades and serves in the air forces of several other nations as well. It is the first USAF jet designed originally as a jet trainer, rather than being modified from existing designs. The T-37's flying characteristics help students in transitioning to the faster T-38 Talon in the latter stage of flight training. Its side-by-side seating allows the instructor to observe and train the student pilot easily.
This handcrafted model is painted in the same paint scheme as the original and is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen. Perfect as a gift for any aviation enthusiast and history buff!
