Tata HAL Technologies, the JV between Tata Technologies and Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL), today announced that it was awarded the Design Approval Certificate by Centre for Military Airworthiness & Certification (CEMILAC), the airworthiness approval authority for military aircraft in India.
The certification showcases the solid foundation, systems and deep aerospace domain expertise at Tata HAL Technologies. The basic tenet of airworthiness is that the aircraft designed and developed should be certified by an independent airworthiness regulatory organization through a strict vigil and evaluation process during the development stages.
“There will be an increase in optimisation and cost containment needs to make airplane programs competitive and sustainable, especially in the area of aero-structures, which comprise a substantial weight of an aircraft. This certification is a testimony of our ability to address the most pressing problems faced by OEMs and Tier-Is,” added Lokesh Ranjan Srivastava, CEO of Tata HAL Technologies.
