Aero India 2021: India’s military aviation expo underway at Yelahanka Air Force station

Bengaluru: The 13th edition of the Aero India show began at Bengaluru’s Yelahanka Air Force Station on Tuesday. The three-day show will be held from February 3 to 5.

The event was inaugurated by Union Defence Minister Rajnath Singh. Three Mi-17 helicopters took part in the flypast during the inauguration of Aero India-2021.

Speaking at the event, Singh said that India offers a unique opportunity in defence and aerospace manufacturing. Under the Atmanirbhar Bharat Abhiyan, domestic manufacturing of bigger and complex defence platforms has become the focus of the country’s defence policy, he said.

“I believe Aero India 2021 will boost investment, expand manufacturing ecosystem, support enterprises, appreciate and enhance the technology levels and propel the economic growth for the country”, he said.

Singh added that this year’s show will showcase India’s commitment towards the country’s growing defence capabilities and will also feature seminars on Aatmanirbhar Bharat.

“I am confident that these three days will prove to be productive and fulfilling. I am also sure that our shared vision and values will forge new relations and carry forth the existing relationships and associations to the next level”, he said, before wishing the show success and declaring it open.
