  • TIJT trainer hits 100

    News | 20 Jun 2005 23:00

    <P>Hindustan Aeronautics’ (HAL) HJT-36 intermediate jet trainer (IJT) performed its 100th test flight on 14 June during the type’s debut appearance at the Paris show. The Indian company’s two Snecma Larzac-powered IJT prototypes are now supporting development of the basic trainer design, with production aircraft to use locally produced AL-55I turbofans providing an increased power output. The Indian air force has a requirement for at least 200 IJTs to replace the service’s HAL-built Kiran trainers.<BR>Unveiled this year, the HJT-39 twin-engined combat aircraft trainer is awaiting approval to proceed into the development phase, says company chairman Ashok Baweja. The company and air force will soon make a decision on development of the aircraft, he says, adding that the programme will require 40 months to progress to first flight (Flight International, 15-21 February).<BR>HAL and the air force have still to conclude an anticipated deal for production of up to 40 Tejas light combat aircrhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/TIJT-trainer-hits-100-199814/
  • RSK MiG offers dual trainers plan to India

    News | 13 May 2002 23:00

    <p>RSK MiG is proposing a training system for the Indian air force based around its MiG-AT and the Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) HJT-36 Intermediate Jet Trainer, which is under development in India. HAL has produced a mock-up of the tandem-seat, single turbofan engined aircraft.</p> <p>The Snecma/Turbomeca Larzac engine powers the MiG-AT and the first Larzac is due to be delivered to HAL for the HJT-36 later this year.</p> <p>Head of the Mikoyan Engineering Centre Vladimir Barkovsky says operating both types would reduce India's trainer operating costs by at least 15%. Further savings would be accrued by using the same avionics and systems.</p> <p>"The best solution for India would be to use the lightweight, single-engine HJT-36 for initial training and the larger, twin-engine, digital flight control system-equipped MiG-AT for advanced and weapons training," Barkovsky says. </p> <p>RSK MiG's engine business has manufactured components for seven prototype Soyuz RD-1700s offered to MiGhttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/RSK-MiG-offers-dual-trainers-plan-to-India-147662/

    <p><img src='../Assets/GetAsset.aspx?ItemID=3071' /></p> <p>India has given the go-ahead to the Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) HJT-36. The aircraft will replace ageing HJT-16 Kiran basic trainers in service with the Indian air force. </p> <p>HAL chairman Krishnadas Nair says the company has been given the green light and already received Rs1.8 billion ($42 million) for the production of two prototypes, flight test and certification. </p> <p>First flight will be by late 2002, with service entry two years later. The Kiran reaches the end of its service career in around 2005. "It will be HAL's fastest development programme," says Nair. A mock-up was displayed at the Aero India 98 show in Bangalore. </p> <p>More than 200 HJT-36s are required at a fly-away cost of Rs180-190 million per aircraft. Nair says the HJT-36 will be lighter, have fewer components, improved fuel consumption as well as improved reliability and maintainability compared to the Kiran. </p> <p>HAL has yet to select an ehttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Indian-trainer-programme-gets-go-ahead-54176/
