Modified Saras may fly in a fortnight

A re‐engined and modified version of the 14‐seater Saras, the Light Transport Aircraft being developed by the National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) may finally take off in 15 days. This comes weeks after Light Combat Aircraft Tejas obtained the initial operational clearance‐2, almost 30 years since conception. NAL director Dr Shyam Chetty told TOI: “The aircraft has been handed over to the Aircraft and Systems Testing Establishment of the Indian Air Force which is doing the ground‐runs and Familiarization.”
