Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), the Indian state-owned aerospace and defense company, is making significant strides in the production of LCA-Tejas Trainers. The Indian Air Force (IAF) recently welcomed the first of the 18 trainer aircraft to be procured from HAL, marking a milestone in India’s indigenous fighter aircraft program.

The latest addition to the lineup is the LT-5204, which is the fourth LCA-Tejas Trainer. The manufacturing process has reached an advanced stage, with HAL recently releasing images of the aircraft. LT-5201, the first FOC-configured (Final Operational Clearance) LCA-Tejas Trainer, took its maiden flight approximately six months ago. HAL also unveiled images of the LT-5202, the second aircraft in the FOC configuration.

According to HAL’s Chairman and Managing Director, CB Ananthakrishnan, the Indian Air Force is expected to receive seven more LCA-Tejas Trainers by the end of March 2024. The company has ambitious plans to deliver an additional 10 LCA-Tejas Trainers by 2025-26. Simultaneously, HAL is gearing up for the production of single-engine LCA-Tejas Mk1A fighter jets. Deliveries of these jets are set to commence in February 2024, starting with two units.
