Indian star shuttler PV Sindhu has added another accolade to her illustrious career as she co-pilots a Light Combat Aircraft – Tejas, during Aero India 2019 and flew high in the sky.
The 23-year-old waved to the audience before taking off in the made-in-India Light Combat Aircraft (LCA).
The HAL Tejas is an Indian single-engine, a multirole light fighter designed by the Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) and Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for the Indian Air Force and Indian Navy.
It came from the LCA programme, which began in the 1980s to replace India’s ageing MiG-21 fighters. In 2003, the LCA was officially named “Tejas”.
