National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) has issued fresh tenders for Design Consultancy on the development of Automatic Flight Control System (AFCS) and Flight Director Systems for the Saras Mk2 program. An aircraft autopilot with many features and various autopilot-related systems integrated into a single system is called an automatic flight control system (AFCS).
The indigenously developed 19-seat aircraft will cater to the needs of the Indian Air Force and also the regional connectivity services among the tier-2 and tier-3 cities. The first flight of Saras Mk2 is been planned in 2024-25 and will use the most advanced technology like AFCS that will make it easy for the pilot to handle and fly.
The Transport Aircraft Division (TAD) of HAL in Kanpur will be producing Saras Mk2 that also manufactures HAL Do-228 aircraft that also has been modified to be used as a 19-seat aircraft for air connectivity, charter services, or air ambulance service.
