India’s future fighter pilots are getting a firsthand look at the nation’s burgeoning domestic aviation industry. Student officers at the prestigious Indian Air Force Test Pilots School (IAFTPS) recently embarked on familiarization visits to leading Indian aerospace companies.

These visits provided the student pilots with invaluable exposure to the cutting-edge research and development (R&D) taking place right here in India. Companies like Newspace Research & Technologies and E-plane Company opened their doors, showcasing their innovative creations such as hybrid UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicles) and next-generation flight-testing methodologies.

The students also gained insights into the development and production of advanced weaponry and aircraft components. At BrahMos Aerospace, they witnessed the intricate testing and assembly process of the BrahMos supersonic cruise missile. Meanwhile, a visit to Tata Advanced Systems offered a glimpse into the production lines for various aircraft components.

The program fosters collaboration between the IAF and Indian aerospace companies, potentially leading to even more groundbreaking advancements in the years to come.
