    Please stop posting negative comments. It's done only 1 test flight and u already want the IAF to start inducting this aircraft.

    Where is ur common sense??.

    Its Different

    Why we repeat same old story ? Developing this on full fledged trainer will take at least another 2 -3 years. Till that training of our pilots will suffer and we will have more casualties. The intended purpose of this craft seems to be for business travel, lets achieve that goal first then we will think of enhancing it.

    no way this is not completely Indian.
    GippsAero(75% stakes owned by mahindra ) a Australian firm built it from Indian design and the engine is also US built Lycoming O-540

    It is too young to be used as a trainer for IAF dear.

    NM5 is not capable of aerobatics, so we cant use them for the IAF anyway.

    NM5 is not capable of aerobatics, so we may not be able to use this for IAF.

    Good comment below – This should be made into basic trainer for IAF instead of buying from other countries. Even if kickbacks are paid, at least the cost overrun will be going to an Indian company

    The pseudo-Commies will be crying bitterly that private sector was allowed to develop this aircraft rather than the almightly DRDO and HAL which took 20 years to make Saras fly. 'Blasphemer baniyas! Babu is god! Only my god should have monopoly over aerospace! HAL owns the skies! Government is god!'

    Now they should scrap Saras and instead let Mahindra make a 14-seater plane. Also scrap that HTT-40 two-seat trainer that HAL is asking another decade to make and instead let Mahindra make one: Like NM5 they'll have it flying within 3 years of making the announcement.
