Indian Navy on 6 November 2013 inducted the fourth generation advanced jet trainer aircraft Hawk 132 at a ceremony held at the Naval Air Station INS Dega at Visakhapatnam. Hawk 132 is an aircraft operating with over 24 countries around the world. The aircraft was built by the Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) with Transfer of Technology from M/s British Aerospace, UK. Hawk 132 is equipped with advanced and reliable navigation systems and it is able to deploy an impressive array of weaponry including air-to-air missiles, air-to-ground rockets, bombs and guns.

The HOTAS (Hands on Throttle and Stick) system on the control column enables the pilot to make weapon selections without maneuvering his hands. The Indian Air Force is also operating these aircraft for training of their pilots.

The induction of the sophisticated aircraft will boost the training of combat pilots in the Navy for helping them learn advanced fighter flying.
