China opens its account at Aero India 2017

Sometimes, I feel that its like when you load some program, it goes very fast to 95 per cent and the last 5 per cent takes more time.

The Minister said defence technology development fund had got an initial contribution from Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd. and Bharat Electronics Ltd. "I am not concerned", Parrikar said at a press conference on the sidelines of "Aero India 2017". "Additional initiatives are also under way to support the private sector in defence manufacturing". If someone wants to shift production to some other place, it is his choice. The five day event had much to offer for visitors on the inaugural day.

"Number of participants is only growing and we have increased the space by 10 percent". The programme is organised under the aegis of the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Civil Aviation. This time, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar will do the honours at the Yelahanka Air Force Station here on February 14.

Organised by the DRDO in association with the Aeronautical Society of India, the brain-storming event has attracted about 900 delegates, including 73 speakers from global aerospace majors, technocrats, policy makers, defence experts and students.

Besides the LCA, HAL also develops a light combat helicopter and a light utility helicopter for the Indian defence forces. These countries will showcase a total of 70 Aircraft's.

The Sukhoi 30 MKI, the Gripen fighter from Sweden's SAAB, India's LCA Tejas, Lockheed Martin's F-16 Falcon from the U.S. and the French Rafale are the main attractions.

The air Show witnessed a fly past by the Make in India formation consisting of HTT-40, Hawk-i, Dornier-228, Su-30MKI and the Tejas Light Combat Aircraft.

The Yakovlev aerobatic team, the Skycats, the Surya Kiran Aerobatics Team and the Sarang helicopter display team also presented a scintillating performance.

The University's Chief Executive and Vice-Chancellor, Sir Peter Gregson, and Simon Harwood, Director of Defence and Security, will both visit Aero India this week. He said the make in India programme had resulted in Defence Research and Development Organisation rolling out almost 20 products in the last couple of years. Among these is the French Rafale fighter jet - 36 of which were ordered for the Indian Air Force in November 2016 for $8.7 billion.
