Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), India’s leading aerospace and defense company, is set to take center stage at Wings India 2024, showcasing its indigenous civil aviation platforms – the Hindustan-228 aircraft and the civil variant of the ALH Dhruv helicopter. This prestigious event, held at Begumpet Airport, Hyderabad from January 18-21, 2024, provides a platform for HAL to highlight its commitment to strengthening India’s domestic civil aviation industry.
The Hindustan-228, a 19-seater turboprop aircraft, is designed specifically for regional connectivity and challenging routes. Its robust design, high fuel efficiency, and short take-off and landing capabilities make it ideal for connecting smaller towns and cities with limited airport infrastructure. At Wings India, HAL will showcase the aircraft’s potential for promoting regional economic growth and enhancing accessibility for remote communities.
The civil variant of the ALH Dhruv, a multi-role helicopter, offers a unique combination of performance and versatility. Its spacious cabin, high payload capacity, and maneuverability make it suitable for a wide range of applications, including offshore oil and gas operations, medical evacuation, disaster relief, and VIP transport. At the event, HAL will demonstrate the Dhruv’s potential to support essential services and infrastructure development across diverse sectors.
HAL’s participation at Wings India goes beyond simply showcasing its existing products. The company also plans to engage with industry stakeholders, potential customers, and government officials to discuss future plans for the civil aviation sector. This includes exploring partnerships, collaborations, and exploring potential opportunities for the development of new and advanced civil aircraft and helicopters.
