The CASA C-101 Aviojet is a single-engine training and ground-attack aircraft built since 1977 by the Spanish Construcciones Aeronáuticas SA (CASA). The aircraft has a modular design, so that it can be prepared for different applications in the shortest possible time.
Reliability has turned the Aviojet into a sophisticated training machine for initial flight experience up to air combat training. There are 166 units in different versions worldwide. In addition to the Spanish Air Force, Honduras, Chile, and Jordan also commissioned the C-101.
The eight Aviojets in the Spanish Patrulla Aguila aerobatic team can be seen at AIRPOWER19.
