Love flying the mean machine: Tejas test pilot

He dazzled the audience with twists, turns and somersaults from the cockpit of the Light Combat Aircraft (LCA) Tejas. With Group Capt Suneet Krishna at the controls of the aircraft, delays by its manufacturing agencies were forgotten.

The man who flew the Tejas on the first day of Aero India 2013 on Wednesday, Suneet has been a fighter pilot with the Indian Air Force for 23 years. He recently joined the ADA as a test pilot.
“The LCA Tejas is a very different aircraft from most others used by the Indian Air Force. Years of flying it gives me tremendous confidence now. And yes, I love my job,” said Suneet, one of the six test pilots for the LCA in the country.
