The Chief of US Air Force, General David L. Goldfein, flew a sortie in the indigenous Light Combat Aircraft Tejas on Saturday at the IAF station in Jodhpur.

Goldfein arrived in India on Thursday, on a visit to boost defence ties between the two nations.

In November last year, the Defence Minister of Singapore Ng Eng Hen was flown in a Tejas fighter jet.

The indigenous LCA is a single-seat, single-jet engine, multirole light fighter. 

Indigenously developed by the Aeronautical Development Agency, and produced by Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, Tejas, as a fourth generation aircraft, can fly at 1,350 km per hour, with a payload capacity of 4,000 kg.
