Designed by Hawker Siddeley for the RAF, the HS.1182 Hawk first flew on 21 August 1974.  Training squadron service began late in 1976.

British Aerospace and McDonnell Douglas proposed the Hawk to the U.S. Navy's VTXTS program in 1978.  Designated the T-45 Goshawk, this aircraft has replaced the T-2 Buckeye and TA-4 Skyhawk for intermediate and advanced jet training.
