Test Pilot was Wg Cdr P Ashoka.It completed its 128Hr of test flight before being donated to HAL Museum. It was designed by the National Aerospace Laboratories and produced by HAL.PERFORMANCE:------------------Crew: 2Length: 25ftHeight: 8.7ftEmpty weight: 550kgAll-up weight: 750kgWingspan: 34.35ftEndurance: 4HrFuel Capacity: 85LStall Speed: 47KIAS (Knots Indicated Air Speed)Cruising Speed: 96KIAS (Knots Indicated Air Speed)Rate Of Climb: 650ft/minLanding Distance: 1770ftTake-Off Distance: 1355ftPropeller: 2 bladed Hoffmann propeller of diameter of 1730mmPower plant: Rotax914F3(Turbo Charged)100bhp@5500rpm / 115bhp@5800rpm

Its the HANSA trainer aircraft from HAL. Twin seater turboprop. Limited numbers manufactured.
This is the Grob 120. It is a notable development by Grob Aerospace of Germany in that it has a carbon composite airframe. This has supposedly resulted in fewer maintenance requirements.First flight was 1999. It has more recently been offered to the IAF as a basic trainer, including a possible deal involving HAL in the manufacture and supply chain should Grob be chosen:http://www.business-standard.com/india/news/grob-aircraft-targets-181-trainers-for-iaf/398378/I am guessing this is related to the location of the picture.The engine of the standard A model is a 260 hp, 6 cylinder lycoming and it has a MTOW of about 1500 kg. The new TP version (being offered to India) has a more powerful engine rated at 380 horses (continuous) and 456 hp peak (for 5 minutes). All this and more can be found on the official website: http://www.grob-aircraft.eu/index.php/home.html
