Final version of Tejas PV6, 2-seater trainer takes to sky in maiden flight

The final version of the two-seater trainer version of Tejas (PV-6) made its maiden flight, in a milestone for India's overall indigenous Light Combat Aircraft Tejas Programme.
This is the 16th Tejas variant to have flown as part of the project that has been in the pipeline for over two decades.
The PV6 has absorbed all the major design modifications undertaken during the last 2,500-plus flights in the programme.
This is the final prototype and will lead to final production of the trainer aircraft.
The aircraft has a new communication system, radar, EW sensors and new navigation systems for automatic landing.
