"This is a TX-65 primary trainer. The X-wing may no longer be on the Fleet's frontlines, but every pilot in the Fleet took his first one hundred hours in one of these, and every new pilot probably will in the years to come."
Admiral Gial Ackbar, speaking to Plat Mallar on the TX-65 X-wing[src]

The TX-65 X-wing starfighter, more commonly known as the Trainer-X, was a starfighter in the service of the New Republic and was the primary starfighter used for educating trainees.


It was a direct variation of the far more common T-65 X-wing starfighter, and was visually similar to its predecessor. However, it had a wider fuselage, large enough to sport a cockpit twice as large as the original T-65. This was for two pilots: a primary pilot and a mentor pilot, who observed the trainee, taught him, and observed the progress of the starfighter to attempt to prevent any catastrophic accidents.

The TX-65 X-wing sported four powered-down "dummy" training laser cannons, one on each of the wingtips of its four S-foils. It also had a hyperdrive.


The TX-65 X-wing starfighter was in the service of the New Republic by the time of the Black Fleet Crisis, approximately 1617 ABY.

All pilot trainees had to fly on a TX-65 X-wing before being rated to fly a T-65 X-wing or before advancing to training in flying an E-wing escort starfighter.
