HAL reveals new look for HTT-40 basic trainer design

A new basic trainer design is making its first appearance on Hindustan Aeronautics’ stand in model form, with the HTT-40 turboprop planned as an indigenous replacement for the Indian air force’s retired HPT-32 Deepaks.
HAL says the aircraft – which differs markedly from a concept image displayed at the last Aero India show – has an 11m (36ft) wing span, a fuselage length of 11.3m and a maximum take-off weight of 2,800kg (6,170lb).
The type will be capable of flying at a maximum speed of 243kt (450km/h) and at altitudes up to 19,700ft.
