Night landing achieved in navy’s aircraft carrier INS Vikrant

The Navy’s aircraft carrier INS Vikrant now moving somewhere in the Arabian Sea witnessed for the first time night landing of MiG 29 K on May 24th.


 This challenging accomplishment, within three months of maiden day landing demonstrates the resolve, skill and professionalism of the Indian Navy, Vikrant crew and Naval Pilots.


The maiden day landing of MiG-29K and the indigenous LCA (Navy) was achieved earlier this year in February. Since then, day and night landing trials of all helicopters in the Naval inventory have been progressed. In continuance with the impetus on the Aviation Trials, the Navy has achieved another historic milestone by undertaking maiden night landing of MiG-29K on May 24 according to an official release..

INS Vikrant, the first Indigenous Aircraft Carrier and the most complex warship ever built in our country by the Cochin Shipyard Ltd, has undergone extensive Sea trials since her maiden sailing on August 2021. Commissioned into the Indian Navy on September 22 the Carrier is a big boost to the 'self reliance’ vision of   India.

The Carrier is presently undergoing Air Certification and Flight Integration Trials with Rotary Wing and Fixed Wing aircraft for achieving 'Combat ready' state at the earliest.
