The 16th series produced Tejas (LA-5016) completed a couple of her production sorties by last evening. Flying Daggers will be in full strength before end of this financial year. With FOC in kitty, the final set of aircraft with FOC standard will start coming out of the production line.

As per HAL Chairman, HAL will put all effort to deliver all the 16 aircraft by March 2020. Appears to be a tall order. But keeping in view of the maturity level achieved in both the production lines, Let us hope this target is achieved without any big hurdle. The competition between the two assembly hangars is intensifying. Competition, in one sense, indicates better days are ahead.
