New Delhi: In tune with the Aatmnurbhar Bharat mission, Boeing India and Air Works are undertaking heavy maintenance checks on three P-8I long-range maritime patrol and anti-submarine warfare aircraft operated by the Indian Navy simultaneously at Air Works, Hosur.
Boeing said in a statement that the step has increased the scope and scale of Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) undertaken in the country and demonstrates both the companies’ commitment in helping make India Aatmanirbhar in aerospace and defence.
Boeing India and Air Works will commemorate their collaboration at the Boeing India Aatmanirbharta in Defence Conference being organized in New Delhi on Tuesday, May 10, 2022, with participation from dignitaries from the Indian Navy, Air Works Group, and other key supplier-partners.
Boeing’s strategic collaboration with Air Works was an important first step under the Boeing India Repair Development and Sustainment (BIRDS) hub launched last year. The BIRDS hub envisions a collaboration with key local companies and businesses to develop India into an aviation and defence repair and sustainment hub.
Established in 1951, Air Works Group is India’s biggest and highly diversified independent MRO with the largest pan-India network presence across 27 cities.
