HAL Delivers First Dornier Ship-Set To RUAG
Dornier Do-228 aircraft

HAL has delivered the first ship-set of the new generation Dornier Do-228-212 NG aircraft to RUAG, Germany at a function held at its Transport Aircraft Division (TAD) at Kanpur recently.

“We have manufactured and supplied the ship-set in a record time, ahead of schedule commitment”, says Mr. T. Suvarna Raju, CMD, HAL. This is the first of the four ship-sets for which HAL had received the export order only about four months ago.

RUAG is a Swiss technology company with its headquarters in Bern and it is OEM of Dornier-228-NG aircraft. HAL has manufactured these ship-sets at its Transport Aircraft Division, Kanpur and exported them to the OEM.

HAL is also exploring cost reduction to make the aircraft viable for more export opportunities and internal civil operations.
