Aeralis is a group of aerospace and military fast-jet and test flying professionals, led by Cranfield University-qualified aircraft designer Tristan Crawford MRAeS MSc MA Cantab, with inputs from UK Trade & Investment and Fielding Aerospace Consultants Ltd.

Crawford started development of a new jet trainer concept in 2010, taking the idea into the AERALIS modular concept with the aim of setting up a cutting-edge, world-class and innovative collaboration for developing a new jet training system by 2020. The collaboration targets rapid innovation and development by including the expertise of Formula One and businesses offering state-of-the-art, portable cockpit and training displays, as well as conventional aerospace OEMs and Tier 1s.

The upcoming USAF T-X trainer requirement and the future need for a replacement for the Red Arrows ageing Hawk T1 highlight the need for a clean-sheet, affordable 21st century trainer platform to prepare tomorrow’s pilots for the front line.
