This highly detailed simulation of the Hawk T1/A Advanced Trainer for Microsoft Flight Simulator has been developed by Just Flight's in-house development team after hands-on research with a real-life ex-RAF and ETPS Hawk T1.
The Just Flight Hawk has been modelled to an exceptional level of detail and features a variety of 8K PBR paint schemes (including the RAF and Red Arrows), realistic payloads (including AIM-9 missiles, rockets, practise bombs, 30mm Aden cannon gun pod, Red Arrows diesel/dye smoke pod) and ground equipment. Both the front and rear pilot positions are included and the aircraft features a truly 3D virtual cockpit with smoothly animated 3D instruments and fully functioning custom-coded systems and avionics.
The Hawk T1 is a British-built single engine jet trainer with a two-man tandem cockpit. First flown in 1974, the Hawk has served as an advanced training aircraft for nearly 40 years. The design has proved to be highly successful, with over 900 examples of more than 10 variants sold to air forces in 18 countries, including the UK, Finland, India and Saudi Arabia.
The Hawk T1 variant, first delivered to the RAF in 1976, continues to serve as an advanced jet and weapons trainer. Possibly the most well-known Hawk T1s are those flown by the world famous RAF Red Arrows display team, which has been flying the Hawk T1 since 1979.
Note: This add-on features weapons which will NOT be included in the version available from the MSFS Marketplace.

PBR (Physically Based Rendering) materials with real-time environment reflections for superb quality and realism
Detailed normal mapping for down-to-the-rivet precision of aircraft surfaces
Static weaponry with the correct brackets and pylons for all weapon types: - Aden 30mm centre line gun pod - AIM 9M and CATM-9 practise missile - CBLS/BDU-33 practise bombs - Matra LRF4 rocket launcher pods
Ground services support (marshaller and fuel truck)
Full support for MSFS visual icing effects
Optional drop tanks for longer range flights
Numerous effects, including Red Arrows display smoke, engine and GTS exhaust haze and wing vortices
A truly 3D virtual cockpit featuring accurately modelled ejector seats, cockpit wear and tear and stunning texturing - every instrument is constructed fully in 3D with smooth animations
Cockpit textures feature wear and tear based on reference photos taken in the real aircraft to produce an authentic environment
Dimmable instrument, radio and flood lighting, with separate control circuits for each cockpit
Tablet EFB for controlling various aircraft options, and checking aircraft and flight information: - 'Cold & Dark', 'Ready for Take-off' and ‘Ready for Start’ aircraft states - Persistent aircraft states, allowing you to always return to your cockpit in the same state that you last left it - Canopy, hatch and ground equipment controls - Choose between weapon panels, Red Arrows smoke controls, Gunsight /GPS/Gunsight + GPS configurations, and hide the control column for an unobstructed view of the cockpit - Configure ordnance and rear pilot/instructor - Basic autopilot controls for ease-of-use
Front and rear cockpit positions fully modelled and simulated
Developed using the latest MSFS standards, including intuitive and easy-to-use controls for rotary knobs, multi-position switches and levers
Fully compatible with MSFS VR mode
A variety of showcase camera presets (including front pilot looking aft, over front pilot's shoulder, over front pilot's ejection seat, over left and right wings)
Front or rear seat pilot is visible whilst in the cockpit view (pilot being shown is toggled automatically based on whether the front or rear cockpit is selected)
Custom-coded aircraft systems
Electrical system with generators, busbars, inverters and AC/DC power supplies
Hydraulic systems, including independent No.1 and 2 systems, accumulators and RAT operation in case of engine failure
