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

ACM RKS Bhadauria, CAS flew HTT40, tested its flying capabilities for one hour. First serving Air Chief to fly in prototype as Chief of Air Force. Details follow.@drajaykumar_ias @SpokespersonMoD @DefProdnIndia @gopalsutar

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.

Two tweets that are very important....

https://twitter.com/vigneshaero02/statu ... 7754252288 ---> I actually really like the SPORT. Instead of LCA trainers we should pursue the SPORT. The future of IAF training can be HTT-40, IJT and then SPORT.

https://twitter.com/nileshjrane/status/ ... 2916262912 ---> SPORT could become the new MOFTU. Its probably a bit too much for AJT. As such, AJT Hawks are here to say for quite a while. In the next iteration we may need an AJT with has 5/6G features.

https://twitter.com/DFI_Sancho/status/1 ... 5237442560 ---> Some interesting info on the IAF trainer front:

- 38 x PC7 doesn't seem to be cancelled yet (deferred for 1 year)
- negotiations for 20 x more Hawks still on
- HTT 40 order possibly around April, if development is completed now

We have had more updates since then. 6-turn spins in both directions have been completed. I don't know if the aircraft has been spun without instrumentation and removal of spin gantry. If not, it must be really close. Expect certification in the coming month(s).
