    For the past few years, safeguarding new pilots has been a significant concern for airlines worldwide. The root cause of the shortage varies by region: In the U.S., an aging workforce faces mandatory retirement, fewer pilots exiting the military, and barriers to entry, including the cost of training. In China and other regions where a growing middle class is demanding air travel, the struggle is to expand capacity fast enough.

    COVID-19 Impact Analysis

    The market had a moderate impact on revenues, given the no effect on the demand for military training. Worldwide militaries are keen on providing more efficient aircraft fleets, prompting them to opt for new next-generation aircraft with more innovative features and advanced cockpits. This has risen to a higher requirement for pilot training on new aircraft interfaces, strengthening the procurement rate of trainer variants.

    Key Players

    The following are the major players in the market:

    There is stiff competition in the market. However, the growth of the market players is directly dependent on industry conditions and government support. These companies differentiate their Military Training Aircraft based on their quality and penetration in the target and emerging markets. Also, recent significant mergers and acquisitions in the industry have significantly influenced the competitive dynamics. For example:

    In February 2021, HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) received an RFP (Request for proposal) from the Indian Air Force (IAF) for the purchasing of 70 HTT-40 primary trainer aircraft. The RFP (Request for Proposal) also includes an option for the IAF to procure 38 additional trainers. Additionally, India is in the line to conduct the first flight for its homegrown HTT 40 primary trainer aircraft.

    In January 2022, HAL (Hindustan Aeronautics Limited) successfully demonstrated the ability of the aircraft to perform six-turn spins on both sides (Left-hand and Right-hand sides). The plane was developed for the stage II training of IAF (Indian Air Force) pilots.

    In February 2022, the Department of National Defense of the Philippines announced that it had received four new CESSNA 172S Skyhawk Trainer Aircraft worth USD$ 2.2 million from the U.S. under the latter's Foreign Military Financing Program.

    In Oct 2019, at the Naval Helicopter Association's Fleet Fly-in at Naval Air Station, Florida, Airbus pilots successfully conducted orientation flights with the U.S. Navy pilots and other stakeholders to demonstrate the capabilities of the H135 trainer aircraft. Furthermore, The H135 trainer aircraft provides future pilots with an ideal platform for training missions conducted over water and in reduced visibility. Thus, the various current developments may lead to the growth of military trainer aircraft in the North American region.

    Segment Analysis

    By Type

    The market is divided into Fixed-Wing and Rotary-Wing. Fixed-wing is further segmented into Basic Jet Trainers, Intermediate Jet Trainers, and Advanced Jet Trainers. The Fixed-Wing is expected to remain the largest market during the forecast periodThe increasing adoption of military training aircraft by developed economies such as the U.K. and the U.S. drives the segment growth.

    From Boeing, multi-engine trainers such as the Boeing 707 are used by pilots that use fixed-wing aircraft types, and aircraft like Boeing T 43 are used for training navigators. Moreover, lightweight, sophisticated jet trainers with robust attack capabilities like the Dassault Alpha jets are being deployed in light strike roles.

    But the substantial costs involved in developing innovative trainer aircraft can challenge players worldwide. When required proper air support to traditional aircraft, the adoption rate of primary trainer aircraft will get affected due to lack of ability.

    By Seat Trends

    The market is bifurcated into single and twin. The single-seat type is expected to remain the biggest market during the forecast period. Due to the increasing modernization of old military training aircraft, a single type has a potential market share during the assessment period.

    By Application Trends

    The market is segmented as armed and unarmed. The armed account for the largest market share in 2021, owing to the increasing arms race in developing nations.

    Regional Analysis

    In terms of regions, North America is likely to maintain its supremacy in the market throughout the forecast period. 

    This is primarily due to the new technical solutions and the application of modern technologies, which have directed the introduction of various combat aircraft configurations, moreover, with a significant improvement in reliability, operational performance, and flight performance through the creation of new features that enhance the ability to integrate sensors and process the information.
