Transport Aircraft Division (TAD), Kanpur of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has issued an Expression Of Interest For the Design And Development Of an Auto-Pilot System For Dornier Do 228 Aircraft. The objective of this EoI is to seek responses from eligible Indian industries and to shortlist potential industry partners which could participate in the design, development, and manufacture of the AutoPilot System for Dornier Do-228 aircraft.
The initially estimated volume of the system is around eighteen (18). Based on market response to Civil Do-228 aircraft the expected volume may go up to 100 units.
Presently, HAL manufactured Do-228 aircraft are fitted with Bendix-King/ Honeywell’s KFC250/ KFC-325 Autopilot systems. HAL plans to equip new Do-228 aircraft with the latest autopilot system with seamless compatibility with onboard Glass Cockpit (EFIS) and other systems.
