EGR Debut Of LCA (Navy) Prototype NP-1

The first EGR of NP1 Naval LCA-Tejas aircraft was conducted at about 1830hrs on the 26 Sep 2011 for its schedule time, had the primary objective of checking aircraft to engine integration and activation of the various systems like Flight control, Hydraulics, Fuel, Electrical, Avionics, etc., which was successfully achieved.

The aircraft will now go through a phase of refinements based on feedback identified during the course of the build up and also observed during the EGR, followed by a series of final integration checks and taxi trials before its maiden flight shortly.
