IAF Deputy Chief flies sortie in LCA Tejas trainer, assessed indigenous fighter jet development project

Bangalore: Deputy Chief of Air Staff Air Marshal Ashutosh Dixit on Thursday flew a sortie in the first TEJAS trainer aircraft and assessed its capabilities.
“He was visiting the National Flight Test Centre, Aeronautical Development Agency and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) Tejas Division to assess the progress of the indigenous combat aircraft projects,” IAF officials said.
Dixit, who is an Experimental Test Pilot himself, has been driving the Atmanirbhar Bharat efforts of the Indian Air Force towards self-reliance in the development and manufacture of combat aircraft.
During his visit, the Air Marshal flew the Series Production Trainer-01 of the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) TEJAS, which is undergoing final developmental test sorties, to get a first hand feel of its capabilities.
The IAF is presently operating the TEJAS MK-1 aircraft and has a pending order of 83 TEJAS MK-1 aircraft.
During the visit to the Tejas Division, the HAL team briefed the DCAS on the production status of trainer aircraft and the plan for deliveries of the TEJAS MK-1A.
The DCAS will also visit the Light Combat Helicopter (LCH) Prachand Production Line to assess the production status of the homegrown combat helicopter.
The delivery of 10 LCH Limited Series Production aircraft for the IAF is nearing completion and the production of the Series Production aircraft is likely to commence shortly to meet the order of 145 Series Production LCH for the IAF and Indian Army.
