The Navy revealed today it may use Air Force student training aircraft because of complications with the Navy's T-45C Goshawk.

Naval Air Systems Command chief Vice Adm. Paul Grosklags said today during a House Armed Services tactical air and land subcommittee hearing the Navy is hesitant to use Air Force trainers because they cannot land on an aircraft carrier.

Navy student pilots have not flown for the past two months after numerous reports of physiological episodes.
