29th April 2019 - 08:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


HAL has re-commenced flight testing of the HJT 36 modified intermediate jet trainer at its facilities in Bengaluru, India.

The flight testing of HJT 36 was put on hold after the aircraft encountered problems in spin test flights in 2016.

The aircraft has been designed and developed by HAL for the stage-two training of Indian Air Force pilots. The aircraft can also be used for navigation formation flying, instrument and cloud flying, basic air to ground and air to air weapon aiming and tactical and night flying.

R Madhavan, CMD, HAL, said: ‘HAL continued its R&D efforts and undertook modification of IJT LSP4 aircraft based on extensive and comprehensive wind tunnel studies. HAL’s research, design and technical teams carried out the modifications required with more challenges ahead.’
