The much-anticipated Indian-made fifth-generation fighter jet, the Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA), is inching closer to reality. In a recent interview with The New Sunday Express, Krishna Rajendra, Project Director, AMCA, revealed the ambitious yet achievable timeline for the program.

If all goes according to plan, the AMCA’s maiden flight is slated for September 2028, marking a significant milestone for Indian aerospace ambitions. This ambitious target hinges on a successful four-and-a-half-year development period.

The Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) in collaboration with Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) will spearhead the creation of five AMCA prototypes. These aircraft will undergo rigorous flight testing to evaluate onboard avionics, sensors, and overall performance.

Prior to production greenlight, ADA and HAL will meticulously select and integrate an initial set of weapons onto the AMCA. This process, along with extensive testing, could push the production clearance date to around 2034-35.

ADA expects to unveil the first AMCA prototype by the end of 2027. To expedite the development process, a dedicated Ground Test Vehicle (GTV) will also be built. This ground-based platform will undergo various trials, simulating critical flight scenarios and functionalities.
