Russian Air Force to start test flights of fifth-generation jet fighter T-50

March and April 2014 are scheduled by Russian Air Force for the testing period, indicating that the aircraft is finally ready and can be passed into service.

Five aircraft are due to be tested, with the fifth T-50 having taken off in October 2013. Just a month later, the overall number of flights exceeded 450. Once the Russian Air Force gets 6 or 8 experimental T-50 jetfighters, the number of flights could easily reach 400 to 500 per year, which provides for carrying out the flight test programme of 2000 flights in a matter of three to four years. The first few T-50 jetfighters are due to arrive at the Lipetsk training centre of the Russian Air Force for retraining Russian military pilots in 2015.
