Design and development

The M-345 is a small tandem two-seat shoulder-wing monoplane with a retractable tricycle landing gear, powered by a single Pratt & Whitney Canada JT15D-5C turbofan. It is based on the earlier SIAI-Marchetti S.211, with the addition of both structural and equipment improvements. The airframe has been strengthened, and a glass cockpit and modern avionics have been added. As a basic trainer, the aircraft is designed to complement the Aermacchi M-346 advanced trainer. The aircraft was designed with a secondary close air support capability with five underwing hardpoints.

 

In April 2008, Alenia and ENAER of Chile signed an agreement to jointly manufacture and sell the M-346 and M-311 in South America.

On 28 May 2008, Boeing and Alenia signed a joint agreement to cooperate on marketing, sales, training and product support for both the M-346 and M-311.

On 1 June 2015, Alenia Aermacchi presented the M-345 jet to the DGA for the nascent French replacement program for its Dassault/Dornier Alpha Jets. It is developing the Williams International FJ44-4M-powered M-345 for the Italian air force. The M-345 first flew on 29 December 2016.
