HAL, October 16, 2015 - Bengaluru - Light Combat Helicopter (LCH) completed performance trials paving way for finalization of basic configuration.

The Defence Minister, Mr. Manohar Parrikar, visited HAL’s helicopter complex here today and had a detailed look on advanced features and armament fit of LCH prototypes.

“LCH is the only attack helicopter which can operate above 10000 – 12000 feet altitude with considerable load of armament”, said Mr. T. Suvarana Raju, CMD, HAL. Based on successful completion of remaining flight trials, HAL expects operational clearance from CEMILAC very soon.

LCH has completed performance flight trials which involved not only development testing at Bangalore but also trials at extreme environment conditions such as Sea Level at Chennai, Cold weather at Leh, Hot weather at Jodhpur and Hot & high altitude tests at Leh. Accordingly, the helicopter can be cleared for weapon trials. With the finalization of basic configuration, HAL can start production of LCH after the operational clearance.
