Marking a significant milestone, the first Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas Mk1A fighter jet successfully completed its Low-Speed Taxi Trials (LSTT) on Monday, according to prominent defense journalist Anantha Krishnan M.

These initial trials pave the way for the aircraft to undergo more rigorous Ground trials, including High-Speed Taxi Trials (HSTT), before its much-anticipated first flight, tentatively scheduled for March 18th or soon after.

There’s a possibility that Prime Minister Modi might virtually witness this momentous occasion.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) aims to deliver the first two LCA Tejas Mk1A fighter jets to the Indian Air Force (IAF) by April. This paves the way for the formation of the first squadron later this year, expected to be stationed at the Nal Air Base Station in Rajasthan’s Bikaner district, a strategically crucial forward airbase.
