India’s indigenous HTT-40 basic trainer aircraft, developed by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), performed its first public flight in Bengaluru on 17 June. Witnessed by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, the flight lasted some 15 minutes.

Its 30-minute maiden flight had occurred earlier on 31 May, and the above was the eighth flight to date. The HTT-40 was rolled out on 2 February.

The HTT-40 is powered by a Honeywell Garrett TPE331-12B single-shaft turboprop, an engine type selected in June 2015.
