Hi fellow wiki editors!

To help newly registered users get more familiar with the wiki (and maybe older users too) there is now a {{Welcome to the wiki}} template. Have a look at it and feel free to add it to new users discussion pages (and perhaps your own).

I have tried to keep the template short, but meaningful. /Johan G

The CASA C-101 Aviojet is a military turbofan trainer, designed and built in Spain, which made its first flight in 1977. With 2 seats and duplicated instruments, it is used in the early stage of military pilots training, before they are allowed to take higher-performance combat jets. Export versions can use some air-to-ground armament, so the C-101 turns into a light attack plane.

This aircraft is used by Ejército del Aire (Air Army, Spain) for training and aerobatics in the "Patrulla Águila" team; Chile, Honduras and Jordan air forces also uses it like jet trainer, shooting trainer, and light ground attack platform. In Chile was built under licence by ENAER, being called A-36 Halcón.
