    If we can make a 4+ generation fighter aircraft LCA Tejas. Why can't we make a trainer aircraft.

    I feel this is a good beginning as HAL cannot produce a basic trainer with all the promises with just assembling the subsystem bought from elsewhere and yet again HAL has proved that they can only assemble an aircraft under license.The basic trainer technology is not very complex and P-51 Mustang was designed from scratch in 19 months and flown and then with pilot input they went in for British Spitfire Merlin engine and it was a world beater as a decisive weapon that changed the course of the war.I feel sorry for the state of basic trainer at HAL and they definitely have missed the bus. It is high time they do something about IJT and if they cannot bring out a decent IJT by next next year end HAL would miss another bus.I dont know having air marshal Tyagi as chief of HAL would make any difference. Why they want to do each and everything and fail . Why cant they prioritize the project work first and perform in with a fixed deadline and subcontract subsystem to private companies and just do the assembly and get the product tested and with the feedback modify the project.There is lot of talent at HAL and i feel good management skills and planed integration is required to optimize the resources.

    This is some good news. But we all know that a country can't win war with exported foreign toys, no matter how advance they are. Lack of expertise in the foreign machine, spare parts, limited numbers and can't mass produce from home at will. Case in point Vietnam war – Mig 21 vs F-4.

    HAL will benchmark their HTT40 with this basic trainer. The govt should allow them to make the HTT40. Hope they are not planning to make the swiss richer with more orders. Let the orders go to HAL

    HAL is an incompetent beaureaucratic copycat organisation. Better known for assembling aicraft and delaying producion and substandard quality and broken promises, the further they are kept from aircraft the better it is.HPT 32 banaa nahin paaye thikse, itne logon ki jaan le li!! HTT 40????? first make IJT flyworthy, forget HAL.
