HAL, Pawan Hans to Bring Helo MRO to India
Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. and Pawan Hands Ltd. signed a memorandum of understanding to establish a joint venture at Rohini (Delhi) to carry out maintenance work related to all types of helicopters and address the needs of defence and civil markets in India and other countries, according to a HAL press release.
The number of helicopters in the civil and defense segments in India is expected to grow in the next 10 years, partly due to India's "Make in India" campaign. All this, the release said, will require MRO and logistic support to sustain.
