Combat ready Tejas gets final operational clearance certificate

India's first self-made fighter jet Light Combat Aircraft Tejas or LCA Tejas is finally ready to be used in operations by the Indian Air Force (IAF).

The Tejas Mark-I was awarded Final Operational Certificate status by the Indian Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) on February 20.

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) will deliver four more Tejas LCA to the IAF in March 2019, bringing the total number of Tejas aircraft operated by the service to 16.
