The naval version of indigenously built Tejas light combat aircraft successfully took off from the deck of the aircraft carrier INS Vikramaditya in a big leap in the development of the jet. The ski-jump deck is an upwardly curved ramp on the deck of aircraft carriers designed to provide sufficient take-off lift for fighter jets. The aircraft made its 1st landing on the deck of INS Vikramaditya which is yet another milestone.
