Youngje Kim, Vice President, Indo-Pacific Region, Military Systems, GE Aerospace said they wait for final clearance from the (US) government that could clear the path to locally manufacture the F414-INS6 engine for India’s Tejas Mk2 and AMCA fighter program.
Kim also cleared doubts that engines will not merely see an assembly of engine parts in India but will include co-production and transfer of technology.
Kim also confirmed that GE technicians and the engineering team will be in India to help in the integration of their F414-INS6 engine on the Tejas Mk2 aircraft when it is ready and will be in touch with the associate program managers in India from integration, first engine run, taxi trials to the first flight of the aircraft.
Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd along with private industrial partners like Tata Advanced Systems, Mahindra Aerostructures, Godrej & Boyce will be involved in the local production of the F414-INS6 engine.
