`Lakshya` successfully test flown
Balasore (Odisha): Indigenously developed micro-light and pilot-less target aircraft ‘Lakshya-1’ was successfully test flown from the Integrated Test Range at
Chandipur near here today.
`Lakshya-1’, fitted with an advanced digitally controlled
engine was successfully test flown at about 11.40 AM to check
the validity of its engine and duration enhancement, defence
sources said here.
"It is a routine trial by the users," the sources said.
‘Lakshya’ is a sub-sonic, re-usable aerial target system
remote controlled from the ground and designed to impart
training to both air borne and air defence pilots. The flight
duration of the micro light air-craft is usually 30-35
The aircraft has been developed by India`s aeronautic
development establishment (ADE), Bangalore to perform discreet
aerial reconnaissance of battle field and target acquisition.
‘Lakshya’ has been inducted in to the Indian Air Force
(IAF) since 2000.
The trial was significant as Lakshya-11 PTA was
successfully flight tested from the same ground on January 25
