Honeywell to make aircraft engines for HAL

US aerospace major Honeywell is engaged in discussion with state-owned Hindustan Aeronautics Limited to manufacture engines for civil transport aircraft in India, a senior HAL official said.
“They are talking of transferring a production line of one of their global engines….Civil aircraft engine…For their smaller transport aircraft,” Bangalore-based defence major’s Managing Director (Bangalore Complex) AK Saxena said.

He expects the discussions to lead to a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the two firms.

Saxena said global aerospace major Pratt and Whitney is in dialogue with HAL to enter into a broad-based partnership agreement covering areas including energy, research and development and manufacturing.

HAL had already inked a pact with Pratt and Whitney Canada (P&WC) for an aircraft maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) centre in Bangalore.
