The Fuji T-5 was developed by Fuji Heavy Industries as a replacement for the piston-engined Fuji KM-2 (itself a development of the Beechcraft T-34) as a primary trainer for the Japan Maritime Self-Defense Force. Fuji refitted a KM-2 with an Allison 250 turboprop engine in place of the original Lycoming piston engine, the resulting KM-2D first flying on 28 June 1984 and being certified on 14 February 1985 . The KM-2Kai is a further development of the KM-2D, with a modernised cockpit with side-by-side seating and a sliding canopy replacing the original KM-2's car type side doors (which were retained by the KM-2D).

Operational history

The KM-2Kai was ordered by the JMSDF as the T-5 in March 1987, with deliveries of the KM2-Kai to the Japanese Self Defence Forces beginning in 1988, with a total of 40 being built. The T-5 serves with the 201 Kyoiku Kokutai at Ozuki in Japan . The original KM-2 is no longer in service.
