The concept of the Alpha Jet for sale by Dornier originated in the early 1960's as an updated training and light attack aircraft. By mid 1969 the French company Dassault, and the German company Dornier joined together to produce the aircraft.

Air forces around the world, including Belgium, Egypt, France, and Germany all have flown the Alpha Jet.

By 1973 the Alpha Jet for sale by Dornier had been approved for production. Features of the aircraft included a HUD, INS, a laser gun sight, and the latest avionics.

Throughout the years, the Alpha Jet has improved with advanced weapons systems, sensor suites, upgraded radars, and more powerful engines.

Flying the Alpha Jet is reminiscent of stepping into the cockpit of a Vietnam Era attack jet. It can reach high sub-sonic speeds, accelerating quickly. That type of performance requires staying ahead of the jet at all times.

You fly the Alpha Jet with a close eye on the AOA indicator, especially when doing extreme maneuvering at lower speeds and altitudes. At those times, the swept back wing and wing loading of the Alpha Jet require quite a bit of nose high attitude, watching your air speed to avoid a stall condition. Its best handling is at speeds in excess of about 290 mph.
