GE Aviation and India’s premium public sector Aerospace Company Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) are likely to settle for Engine Division Bangalore to locally manufacture F414-INS6 engines as talks with both companies are completed and are pending final clearance from the U.S. administration.
HAL will manufacture F414-INS6 engines under a license agreement between both companies for which it will first upgrade the facilities and train its engineers so that 100% ToT of the engine can be absorbed and the entire supply chain of the engine be created in India.
HAL will also be in charge to provide in-house repair and overhaul capabilities on these engines to IAF and also carryout out certification and testing of these engines after major repairs and also take care of any technical issues due to components on behalf of GE.
HAL will also build its maintenance, repair and overhaul capabilities at its Bangalore and Korwa facilities in India and will also be in charge of training the IAF base-level Squadrons maintenance crew to carry out periodic checkups and repairs.
