International military center of World Wide Web on March 13, 2012: According to the website of India’s fly.
Indian military aircraft airworthiness certification center (CEMILAC) denial of a license, and said the aircraft’s structure needs to be improved. The maiden flight of the aircraft originally scheduled for late 2010, after being postponed. U.S. Navy, the European Union and the European Aeronautic Defence and Space Group (EADS) is being consulted to solve the problem.

The two most important aspects of rectification is the landing gear and special control devices. The weight of the landing gear need to reduce the movement of leading edge vortex controller (Levcon), also need to be restricted (the leading edge vortex controller refers to the aircraft wing root leading edge of a small wing). As the landing gear makes the naval version of the whole is more important to be heavier than the Air Force version of the Air Force version of the leading edge vortex controller. These characteristics enable the naval version is different from the Air Force version.
Under the guidance of the Aeronautical Development Agency, located in Bangalore, India’s Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) is responsible for manufacturing the LCA naval version, the main task of the type of fighter air defense operations, task-to-ship attacks and the execution of interception. The LCA naval version will soon have an additional feature – the emergency release of oil, can help the aircraft to reduce their own weight in order to more safely landed.
The first frame of the LCA naval version was launched in July 2010, the first flight scheduled in late 2010. It is worth mentioning that in the September 26, 2011, the first prototype of the carrier-based fighter aircraft engine ground test.
Indian Defense Minister A.K. Anthony said in Parliament last year: many defects have been detected in the LCA naval version of the fuselage and related equipment, Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO) in collaboration with the parties, the design of the engine and fuselage of the aircraft make the appropriate changes to remedy these deficiencies.
The naval LCA fighter will be in Goa, the aircraft carrier shore-based test facility (SBTF) quiz, where the aircraft carrier arresting cable and landing support facilities. The fighters will become part of the Indian domestic carrier-based fleet. The Navy has its reservation 46 fighters, is expected to carrier sea trials in late 2013. The carrier displacement of 40,000 tons, is made by the Cochin Shipbuilding Co., Ltd..
The LCA naval version of the project team members from the Indian Navy, Indian Air Force (IAF), Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), Defence Research and Development (OECD) (the DRDO), Indian military aircraft airworthiness and Identification Center (CEMILAC), Air India Quality Assurance Administration of China (DGAQA), India’s Ministry of Scientific and Industrial Research Science and Industry Research Council (CSIR) laboratories, educational system, as well as other state-owned and private sector partners. This project is funded by the former commodore Balaji (Balaji) in charge of the project under tremendous pressure.
Indian Air Force LCA It was originally scheduled for 2013 to obtain the final operational license (FOC), now postponed to 2014, combined with the naval version of the light aircraft first flight is too long postponed, LCA light combat aircraft project fair share of criticism.
Quoted the Chief of Naval Staff of India, Virgin immediately, Nirmal Verma, in Port Blair in February this year, saying that the competent authority at a higher level – India’s Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA) investment far beyond the naval version of the light aircraft of Indian Air Force version, the latter extension, largely attributed to India’s Aeronautical Development Agency.
The former Indian Air Force Executive said that in addition to the need for extensive testing, the naval version of the light planes also need a new engine. He also pointed out that the light fighter of the Indian Air Force version of repeated technical obstacles, making the the LCA entire project have been bad news shrouded
