Douglas A-4K Skyhawk

Douglas A-4K Skyhawk

The Douglas A-4K Skyhawk is superbly suited for all Air-to-Air and Air-to-Ground mission sets. Our particular version of the Skyhawk, the A-4K, was extensively upgraded in the early 1990s to a standard similar to the F-16 Mid-Life-Update. This includes the 1553 digital bus, enabling the seamless integration of laser targeting, EA/EW and other pods that require the unique interface. Additional upgrades include the APG-66v7 fire control radar, Radar Warning Receiver (RWR), Heads-up Display (HUD), Hands On Throttle and Stick (HOTAS), and Multi-Function Displays (MFD).

Our fleet of Skyhawks can be refueled in-house with our extensive inventory of buddy store fuel tanks. We can further utilize these capabilities to refuel other probe equipped Navy and Marine Corp aircraft. The Draken A-4K Skyhawks all received new wings, wiring, generators and other systems as part of the extensive upgrade. The resulting airframe delivers all the unique capabilities of an F-16MLU, with the economics and long-range endurance of the A-4 Skyhawk.

In addition to the aircraft, Draken International owns an extensive inventory of spare parts. This includes over twenty spare J-52-P8C motors, seventeen sets of spare radars and other Nav/Attack avionics systems. For safety, Draken operates two Cockpit Procedural Trainers (CPT), and a considerable inventory of life support equipment including spare in-date ejection seat cartridges and portable arresting gear. Draken International’s highly capable, low-time and supportable fleet of Skyhawks is positioned to serve the needs of the Department of Defense and branches of the military for many decades to come.
