The Indian Air Force (IAF) is set to receive the fourth Indian Tejas aircraft, the PV2 version of the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA), which will be dedicated to the Technical Type Training School (TETTRA).
TETTRA schools have a crucial role in providing theoretical and practical training on aviation-related topics to IAF Officers and Airmen. These institutions offer various levels of knowledge to air force pilots from different regions of the country through 91 specialized courses. These courses cover diverse aspects of aviation, ensuring that the pilots are well-versed in the latest technologies and methodologies.
The induction of the PV2 LCA Tejas into TETTRA School is specifically aimed at providing technical training to ground crew and technicians. Participants in this training program will delve into the intricate technical aspects of the LCA-Tejas, including understanding the power supply to the engine, and the functioning of crucial components like the black box and cockpit recorder. This knowledge is essential for the safe and efficient maintenance of the aircraft, which is vital for its optimal performance during missions.
The PV2 LCA Tejas, which had its first flight in 2005 and has since completed 245 flights, has now been designated as “Grounded” due to certain operational considerations. However, this status doesn’t diminish its value, as the aircraft will serve as an invaluable training tool for the future generation of ground crew and technicians. These skilled personnel play a pivotal role in the proper functioning and upkeep of the entire LCA-Tejas fleet.
The Technical Type Training School (TETTRA) is equipped with experienced instructors who are well-versed in the technical intricacies of the aircraft. They will guide and train the participants, providing them with hands-on experience and imparting knowledge that is critical for the successful maintenance and operation of the LCA-Tejas.
One of the unique training facilities available at TETTRA School is the LCA-Tejas system simulator. This advanced simulator allows trainees to simulate various flight scenarios and practice different aspects of aircraft operations in a controlled environment. The simulator helps in familiarizing the trainees with the cockpit controls, navigation systems, and response to emergencies.
