The HTT-40 made its maiden flight on May 31, 2016, and received system-level certification on June 6, 2022. The Centre for Military Airworthiness and Certification is presently approving the entire aircraft.

The HTT-40 will improve the calibre of training for the Indian Armed Forces’ new pilots. The acquisition will also include a Full Mission Simulator for the aircraft, which will supplement aerial training by enabling pilots to practise various flight profiles on the ground before taking off.
