Training Air Wing Two

About 200 flight students report to Training Air Wing TWO each year for advanced/undergraduate Jet/strike Training.

These students report to one of two training squadrons: Training Squadron Twenty One (VT-21) or Training Squadron Twenty Two (VT-22), and begin 11-13 months of extensive training, which leads to their earning the designation of “Naval Aviators” and receiving their coveted “Wings of Gold.”

Training Air Wing TWO is responsible for providing the Fleet with newly winged Navy and Marine Corps aviators. At any given time the Air Wing consists of approximately 200 Student Naval Aviators, 75 instructor pilots, more than 500 civilian and contract employees, and 85 T-45 Goshawk aircraft.  TW-2 trains 50 percent of the Navy and Marine Corps' jet/strike pilots each year, with the remainder being trained at Training Air Wing ONE at NAS Meridian, Miss.

Introduced to NAS Kingsville in 1992, the Goshawk is part of the T-45A/C Training System (TS) developed by McDonnell Douglas, now Boeing Aircraft Company. The students undergo a rigorous syllabus in the T-45A/C Goshawk on the way to earning their "Wings of Gold."
