Rostec CEO Sergey Chemezov (photo) said: “Aero India 2017 is an important event for India’s and regional aviation market. India has for many years been a strategic partner of Russia and Rostec. Our two nations have successfully worked on multiple projects bringing Russian technology to India and producing state-of-the-art military equipment locally, most notably Su-30MKI fighter jets, T-90S tanks and the Brahmos missile.”
“Now the Modi government adopted the “Make in India” course aimed at localization of production of military products in India and it involves creation of joint ventures and deep transfer of technology. In the framework of this program we have signed an agreement to establish a joint venture for the production of Ka-226T in October 2016 at the BRICS summit. Now there is active implementation of this project. We are also working on the expansion of cooperation in various fields in accordance with “Make in India” - in the traditional sphere of military-technical cooperation and in non-military areas such as electronics, biotechnology and composite materials,” he added.
This year, Russian Helicopters’ key exhibit in India is the Ka-226T model. In 2016 Russian Helicopters, Rosoboronexport and HAL Corporation created a joint venture to localize production of the light, multirole Ka-226Ts and to deliver them to the Indian market.
In addition, visitors are shown a multi-purpose Mi-38 in the passenger version. The Mi-38 is one of the most highly automated civil helicopters in the world. A presentation of the light multirole Ansat helicopter is also scheduled.
Meanwhile, Technodinamika is participating at Aero India 2017 for the first time. Technodinamika is enlarging its scope of facilities jointly with India Aerospace players for manufacture of aircraft spares and components under PM’s initiative of Make in India program. The company is successfully supplying to IAF different aggregates and spares for AN-32, IL-Series and has successfully executed most contracts much before the delivery period including the ROH for 11 TA-12 APUs for IL-76 in record time.
