T-37 Tweet History

Cessna Aircraft Company developed the XT-37 in response to a military specification for a turbojet-powered trainer. Cessna model 318 first flew in October of 1954 and won the contract. Used primarily as a trainer, the T-37 was nicknamed the "Tweet" by its primary users, pilots in training. During the lifespan of the program, a light attack version of the aircraft, the A-37, was developed.
