Beechcraft T-34C Turbo Mentor Military Trainer

The Beechcraft T-34 Mentor was designed as a military trainer in the late 1940's, it was based on the Beechcraft Model 45 and it was hoped it would be purchased as a cheaper alternative to the North American T-6/NJ Texan. When introduced the Beechcraft T-34 Mentor was powered by a piston engine, but with the introduction of the T-34C Turbo-Mentor for the USN in 1975 after the Mentor had been out of production for 16 years, the power-plant was changed to a turboprop engine, this gave increased performance and a new lease of life to the design, the Turbo-Mentor remained in production until 1990 and is still in service with numerous armed forces and NASA.
