TAIPEI (Taiwan News) —The second domestically built Brave Eagle Advanced Jet Trainer (AJT) successfully completed its inaugural flight on Saturday (Dec. 26).

The Military News Agency on Saturday pointed out that after the new trainer jet finished its first flight, the test pilot will continue conducting a number of flight assessments.

The first AJT, manufactured by Aerospace Industrial Development Corporation, was officially revealed in Taichung on Sept. 24 after it was assembled in late June.

A total of 66 Brave Eagle AJTs are expected to be delivered by 2026, replacing the nation’s aging AT-3s and F-5E jets.
