A quiet show for HAL at Aero India

Bangalore: The Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), once synonymous with Aero India, will have a quiet time this year with no major debuts or deals scheduled for the mega event.
All that HAL will do is hand over one Cheetah helicopter and five Advance Light Helicopters-Dhruv (ALH) to the Namibian Air Force and the Indian Army, respectively.
Besides this, the mock-up of Light Utility Helicopter, a fixed base full mission simulator of the intermediate jet trainer (IJT) would be part of the display at the HAL stall, along with models of medium-lift transport aircraft, which would be manufactured by the HAL and the United Aircraft Corporation of Russia.
The HAL’s Light Combat Helicopter (LCH) will make its first flight during Aero India. The second weaponised prototype would be unveiled, too, he said.
The HAL has one LCH and one IJT at the static display and LCH and IJT at the flying display.
