The chief seems to be buckled in and ready to go.
As per the tweet he is already airborne and yet to land.

During today's #HTT40 sortie, the CAS is said to have done stall and spin by himself. He told HAL to begin production at the earliest, probably signalling to them that the good news is just round the corner. @Onmanorama @akananth @IAF_MCC

Two Thumbs up for the Air Chief Marshal, HTT-40 and HAL.

Maybe in the next few years, HAL can have a lineup of the HTT-40, IJT-36 (with HTFE-25 engine), indigenised version of Hawk-AJT (with HTFE-25 based engine), LCA-SPORT and LCA-MK1A displayed at Air Shows around the world. The LCA-MK1A hopefully will be with the Uttam-AESA radar, displaying the full gamut of indigenous weapons, from Astra MK1 & 2, NGARM, SAAW, Garuda, Garuthma, PG-HSLD and Brahmos NG.
