Bengaluru-based Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), has started the process to fabricate and install Tejas Mk2 Simulator at the Aeronautical Development Establishment (ADE) facility in Bengaluru that will be used to train Test Pilots that will eventually fly actual aircraft around 2026.
Test Pilots are often used to gauge and get a first-hand view of what a fighter aircraft’s cockpit will look like and to also provide feedback on the layout of instruments to carry out further improvements before Developers finalize the design layout of the cockpit for the production aircraft.
Tejas Mk2 will not have any two seater trainer variant so Flight Simulators will play a key role in the training of Tests Pilots at the Pre-production stage and later will come in handy to train newbie pilots that are moving to Squadrons that are to be equipped with Tejas Mk2 jets when it enters production.
