Navy Grounds 193 T-45C Jet Trainers Over Engine Fault


The Navy’s fleet of carrier-capable training jets have been grounded due to faulty compressor of engine.

The service’s 193 T-45C Goshawk trainers used to train Navy and Marine Corps pilots are now in a “safety pause” following an engine blade fault discovered during a pre-flight check on Oct. 11 at Naval Air Station Kingsville, Texas, Elizabeth Fahrner, a spokeswoman with Program Executive Officer Tactical Aircraft Programs (PEO(T)), told USNI News on Thursday.

A subsequent engineering analysis of the Rolls-Royce Turbomeca F405-RR401 (US VERSION OF ADOUR 871) engine prompted the grounding of the T-45C fleet.

India BAE Hawk use the same engine and reports of trouble with the engine are noted by Flightglobal.

well IAF tried to replace their Adours on Jaguar with more powerful Honeywell F-125 engines but due to budgetary constrains and usual time-wasting of Indian MoD and all 😒 it was determined too costly

if US Navy wants to keep their Goshawks flying with better engine they might want to try F-124 (without afterburner) on these jets ?

Interesting! But looks like USN wants to replace Goshawks.
