LCA Tejas: Indian Air Force gets first twin-seater trainer version of Tejas

IAF gets first twin-seater version of LCA Tejas: In a momentous event for India’s aviation history, the Indian Air Force (IAF) received its first Tejas twin-seater trainer version aircraft on Wednesday (October 4). This significant milestone marks the handover of the first Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) twin-seater trainer version aircraft to the IAF by India’s state owned aircraft manufacturer Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL).

Designed with the strategic intent of transitioning budding pilots into fighter pilots, the LCA Tejas Twin Seater is a remarkable achievement. This delivery is part of the Tejas contract between HAL and the IAF, with a requirement for eight twin-seater trainer aircraft.
