PM Modi flies a fighter plane in Bengaluru and shares his experience

Prime Minister Narendra Modi flew a Tejas fighter jet in Bengaluru on Saturday (November 25) during a visit to the state-run Hindustan Aeronautics Corporation.
Prime Minister Modi is visiting the city to check the progress of work at manufacturing plants.
According to sources, the Prime Minister was traveling in an IAF light fighter aircraft for about 45 minutes.
PM PM Modi while sharing pictures from his flight said that the experience of sorties with his home-grown aircraft has significantly increased his confidence in the country’s inherent capabilities.
“You have successfully completed your mission in Tejas.


“This experience has been incredibly enriching, greatly increasing my confidence in the capabilities of our indigenous peoples and giving me a new sense of pride and optimism about our nation’s potential,” the Prime Minister said.
He also mentioned defense products and highlighted how the government has increased production and exports in India.
Several countries have expressed interest in purchasing the Tejas light combat aircraft, and US defense giant GE Aerospace signed an agreement with HAL to jointly produce engines for the Mk-II Tejas during Prime Minister Modi’s state visit to the US.
Defense Minister Rajnath Singh in April said that India’s defense exports reached an all-time high of Rs.15,920 billion in the financial year 2022-2023, a remarkable achievement for the country.
In October, Chief of Air Staff Air Marshal VR Chaudhary announced that the Indian Air Force had awarded a Rs 1.15 billion contract to acquire 97 additional Tejas in addition to refurbishing 84 Mark-1A Sukhoi-30MKI jets.
He said that final adjustments are being made.
It is expected to be raised at a cost of Rs 60,000 crore.
