    The Tejas Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) is expected to fly again at Aero India 2011, this time not as a prototype or test aircraft but an ‘operational capable aircraft’ of the Indian Air Force. Both the single seat and two-seat versions will be displayed. While Tejas is far from ready for operational capability, it will symbolize India’s technological capability to meet that challenge and progress toward flying a more advanced, indigenous combat aircraft in the future.
