Continuing its success in various projects recently, HAL flew the first FOC upgraded Mirage-2000 aircraft on July 28, adhering to the scheduled date of today.
“We have done it again on time. What it proves is HAL’s capability for mid-life upgrade of platforms to overcome obsolescence issues, enhancing the reliability and maintainability of these aircraft. The introduction of a modern facility for this project ensured the timely upgradation of the Mirage fleet,” said T Suvarna Raju, CMD, HAL.
The Final Operational Configuration (FOC) design was implemented on an Initial Operational Configured (IOC) aircraft, which was received at HAL about eight months ago. “This significant milestone could be achieved with the dedicated effort of HAL’s team of designers and engineers with active support from IAF, RCMA and DGAQA,” added Raju.
