Bangalore: Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) and GE Aviation have signed 30-year contract that covers license to carry out repairs and overhaul of various avionics, instruments and hydraulic products for the Hawk Mk132 aircraft, an Advanced Jet Trainer operated by the Indian Air Force.

This license will provide in-house repair and overhaul capabilities to HAL for GE Aviation products and reduce turn-around-time for the repairs. HAL will build its maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities at its Bangalore and Korwa facilities in India.

As part of the license agreement, GE will develop, supply and commission the test equipment and supply technical data. The agreement also includes training, technical support, post design services for one year, and spares services.

The current schedule calls for the Bangalore facility to be certified for repair and overhaul of hydraulics and instruments and the Korwa facility to be certified for avionics.

"HAL has more than 70 years of providing high quality manufacturing, research and development, and repair and overhaul services in India," said Nalin Jain, country director for GE Aviation. "Adding overhaul for avionics, instruments and hydraulic products is the perfect expansion of HAL's capabilities."

HAL has 19 Production Units and nine Research and Design Centers in seven locations in India. HAL's current products with in-house R & D include Tejas, the Light Combat Aircraft, Dhruv, the Advance Light Helicopter and the Light Combat Helicopter. HAL has manufactured more than 3,640 aircraft, 4,000 engines and overhauled more than 9,400 aircraft and 29,800 engines.
