After Walking out of the Indo-Russian Medium Transport Aircraft (MTA) Program over differences in the choice of engine, Jayadeva E.P, Director (Operations) at Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) at the Investor meeting said that Company is not planning to develop Medium haul Transporter locally in the country.
Last year idrw.org reported that HAL’s Chairman and Managing Director R.
