i saw a booklet for sale on e-bay last week, for a british aerospace EAGLET. it was supposed to be a replacement for the jet provost but i have never heard of it. can anyone give any more details, it must have been more than an idea as the booklet was released.

The only 'Eaglet" I know is the Fairchild T-46. This was intended as a T-37 replacement, but was subsequently cancelled. It certainly was in the JP performance category, so maybe Fairchild and BAe collaborated to offer it to the RAF.

It's still on ebay (UK) for those interested. Link not allowed here, but it's item 2953683896. Doesn't look 'all new' to me, just a JP with some minor bodywork :hmm:

there is more to the story. i now have the eaglet booklet in my possesion and have spoken to a chap that worked in the design dept. he says it was based on the strikemaster/jp but the underside was very different as the jetpipe exits underneath.from the booklet it was described as an economic trainer and had 2 engine options. it was only a design idea and was never built but booklets were produced and sent to prospective customers to gauge the demand.
