Flying schools across India would soon be flying a Made-in-India state-of-the-art trainer aircraft to instruct rookie pilots as the National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) on Wednesday rolled out the HANSA – New Generation (NG) aircraft. The HANSA NG equipped with IFR-compliant avionics with smart multi-functional displays, a glass cockpit and a bubble canopy design is a successor to the HANSA aircraft that was developed two decades ago by NAL.
“In 2016, we did a market survey from a professional agency for six months and found the potential of the growing civil aviation market and that there is a requirement for 100-120 aircraft,” NALDirector Jitendra Jadhav said. Following this, NAL retromodified HANSA-3 aircraft with a glass cockpit and got it certified by DGCA and demonstrated at Aero-India 2019.
