The North American T-6 is a single-engine aircraft with conventional landing gear and a retractable tail wheel. This model is currently intended for the instruction and training of pilots and has also been used in combat in various scenarios such as the Second World War, the Korean War and, more recently, the Portuguese Overseas War.
The North American AT-6 (original designation, changed after the 2nd war to T-6) was the winner, in 1937, of a competition between the great North American manufacturers, aiming at choosing a new combat trainer for the Air Force. Aerial. It was basically a North American BT-9 (with fixed gear and 400 HP engine), re-equipped with a 600 HP Pratt & Whitney "Wasp" engine, and modified for retractable gear. Then designated BC-1 and equipped with light armament, the plane was a complete success, receiving designation SNJ in the version for the Navy. In 1940, his improved model BC-1A received the military designation AT-6, for "Advanced Trainer" (SNJ-3 for the Navy). Total AT-6 production reached 15,649 units, the last of which was manufactured in 1954 in Canada. Of this total, 81 were assembled in Brazil by the Fábrica de Aviões de Lagoa Santa/MG, between 1945 and 1952, a good part of them with a high degree of nationalization. In Brazil, the FAB's T-6s were only decommissioned in 1974 (in the Fumaça Squadron they were used until 1976), gradually replaced by the Neiva Universal. Today, of the 150 that flew in the FAB in 1973, only six T-6s still operate regularly with a civil prefix.
