Probably won’t win, but it’s worth a shot.

BACKSTORY:
In the early 2010s, the United States Air Force was deeply in need for a new trainer to replace the Northrop T-38 Talon. The pentagon put out a contract competition, and many aircraft companies entered. While companies like Boeing and Northrop Grumman’s entries focused on things like power, maneuverability and even stealth, Sanger Aircraft's entry, the YT-150, focused on training systems and electronics. This gave the plane an edge over the larger corporations, and Sanger Aircraft was awarded the contract.

Within 4 years, the production T-150 Fledgling was complete and ready to fly, with advanced onboard systems specifically designed to train pilots for the next generation of combat aircraft, from tiny attack drones to massive bombers. With its first flight, a new era of combat pilots was born, ready to take on a world of advanced weaponry with confidence and power.
