The Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) was approved by the Indian government as long ago as 1983. Project definition followed from 1987, and the basic design was finalised in 199.Significant funds did not become available until the early 90s, with construction of two test aircraft starting in mid-1991. The first prototype (TD1) was rolled out at the end of 1995 at Bangalore. Afterwards, it was undergoing an extended period of engine and systems ground tests, with a first flight repeatedly pushed back.
Further problems arose with US sanctions being imposed in May 1998 after Indian nuclear tests, as the aircraft depends on a US engine and Lockheed Martin assistance with the fly-by-wire system. India then had to finish software development independently. The second aircraft (TD2) was rolled out on 14 August 1998. The first flight of the LCA (TD1) finally occured on 4 January 2001 at Bangalore, with Wing Commander Rajiv Kothiyal at the controls.The flight lasted around 20 minutes, and the aircraft reached 400 km/h and a height of about 3500m. At the Aero India show in early February 2001, the LCA made a fly-by, reportedly on its fourth flight. Another five test aircraft PV1 to PV5 are planned, one of them being a two-seater. PV1 is expected to fly in 2001. The Navy version may fly in 2004.
