    I get that it's a good thing that finally the Indian Air Force is getting basic trainers. The worrying aspect is that isn't this moving backwards? Indians actually manufactured basic trainers, now they're back to buying them from abroad!!! Isn't this worrying?!

    For strange reasons the usually ignorant media is dubbing this a deal for "jet trainers"!

    Finally! Our brave young pilots will be breathing a sigh of relief. Now fast track the deal of intermediate and advanced trainers and MMRCA and follow-up.

    Our squadron strength and aircraft availability is shameful. With both our noisy neighbors rapidly building up forces, we need to get with the program and at least build an effective deterrence.

    I feel ashamed as a Indian that we have to import Basic trainers.

    Why cannot we have a indigenous trainer.

    If HAL, NAL are incapable of doing it, invite private sector for doing it.

    We have responsible companies like L&T, Tata, Mahindras and Godrej. Why they are not invited to design & manufacture these sort of aircraft.

    Its not that HAL is incapable of designing a simple basic trainer when it has already done an intermediate jet trainer. Any product is made when the requirement is projected by the air force and the project is approved by MoD. This hasnt happened till now. Nonetheless HAL has started designing the HTT-40 basic trainer for the airforce. The planning at the high levels of our forces has not been spot on..
