The Airbus Group will highlight its commitment to the government’s Make in India programme at the forthcoming Aero India 2015 in Banagalore.

From commercial and military aircraft to helicopters and radars, the group will present a wide range of cutting-edge products and technologies at the 10th edition of the show.

“We are used to partnerships in India as is shown by our long-standing collaborations with several Indian public and private companies as well as R&D organisations and academic institutions. We are enthusiastic about the Make in India campaign and are ready to leverage our existing local partnerships and invest in new ones to make the most of it. Aero India offers the perfect setting to discuss our plans to make in India with various stakeholders. We look forward to our participation in the show,” said Yves Guillaume, President – India, Airbus Group.

On display at the Group’s pavilion in front of Hall C will be scale models of the world’s most spacious passenger aircraft — the A380 and the fuel-efficient A320neo. Also on exhibition will be scale models of the A330MRTT mid-air refueller, which has been selected by the Indian Air Force (IAF) and the C295 transport aircraft, which has been offered to India, in partnership with Tata, for the Avro replacement programme.

Two Made-in-India products — High Accuracy Air Pressure Measurement System and Structurally Integrated Antenna — are also going to be part of the display line-up. These products have been developed at the Airbus Defence and Space Engineering Centre in Bengaluru.

According to a company release, a model of the EC725, which recently underwent Field Evaluation Trials (FETs) for the Coast Guard’s tender for 14 shore-based helicopters, will be on exhibition, too.
