Rolls-Royce and HAL celebrate 50 years of partnership

The two companies first came together in 1956 with an engine production licence and since then have combined their skills and technology to achieve many successes, including HAL becoming a member of the Rolls-Royce global supply chain in 2003.
While Rolls-Royce looks forward to its future potential in India, HAL and Rolls-Royce are already busy extending their the partnership to include co production of the Adour engines for India’s new Hawk, their Advanced Jet Trainer.
HAL also became a contributor to the Rolls-Royce civil aviation business in 2003 when it started supplying ring forgings to Rolls-Royce for its Trent family of engines.
