Gripen Eyes Exposure in Aero India 2007

With the Request For Proposal (RFP) pending on the Indian Air Force’s 126 Multi Role Combat Aircraft contract, Gripen International – one of the bidders in the race – is eyeing critical visibility at the upcoming Aero India (February 7-11) in Bangalore.

Talking to Deccan Herad on Wednesday, Tony Ogilvy, Vice President (Sales and Marketing) – Gripen International said the show was extremely crucial in the company’s plans for India.

“We’ve pooled all our resources into the event. A big pavilion has been shipped out and for the first time in Asia, three fighter aircraft from the Swedish Air Force will be on display. Aero India will reflect Gripen’s commitment to India and show our real intent,” Mr Ogilvy said. The simulated cockpit for fighter pilots – that will be part of the Gripen pavilion at Aero India – will showcase its key features including top-of-the-line visual display and air-to-air datalinking.
