    In March of this year in our MASS-MEDIA, information flashed by, that India and China became interested in the use of trainer NITKA. During negotiations Russia suggested to increase rent with 700000$, to 2 million$, but to use a trainer individually. And where the trained Indian pilots NAVY ?

    You know that Western aerocarriers carry out flight and landing other. And practicing is necessary on airplanes which will be in the airwing of your aerocarrier.
    It is certainly necessary to build the trainer for itself, but Russia the complex builds similarly long, as well as your aerocarrier. Therefore and agreed to the increase of rent.
    P.S. I not very much well understand not marine and on flying military business, but consider, from that for you different types of ships and airplanes ( Western and soviet school), then there is a bustle. India chooses better, but sometimes his symbiosis - harmful.

    ^^^ I don't think they were trained FOR('in' is ok) catobar operations in US. IMO Naval rookies were sent to US to learn basics of conventional flight operations from carrier before moving on to Russia to learn flying Mig-29K/KUBs from STOBAR carriers that unlike ex Harrier pilots who were sent directly to Russia. It was simply a case of deviation from earlier set of routine when Navy used to sent pilots to AFA before training them at NAS Hansa....... Once SBTF will gets operational and INS Vikramaditya joins service, Navy shall cease all foreign based training and might only use AFA for BFT before training its rookies on its own Hawks and later on operational jets first from SBTF and at latter stage from operational carrier.
