    The Reliance Aerostructure proposal for the development of the Dhirubhai Ambani Aerospace Park with related infrastructure facilities and services at Mihan SEZ (Nagpur) has been cleared by the Board of Approval (BoA) for special economic zone (SEZ) under the Ministry of Commerce, according to an official source.

    "With the BoA nod, the Dhirubhai Ambani Aerospace Park (DAAP) at Mihan, spread over 289 acres, will become the largest greenfield aerospace park in the country. In the first phase, development will be spread over 104 acres and the second phase will cover an additional area of 185 acres," the source said.

    Business at the aerospace park is expected to exceed Rs 200,000 crore over the next 30 years.

    "The aerospace park will also be home to the Dassault Reliance Aerospace Limited joint venture, which is presently creating the state-of-the-art integrated eco structure to execute the Rs 30,000 crore offset program linked to the sale of 36 Rafale Fighter Jets."

    The construction at the aerospace park is expected to start by end of the month with production starting in the first quarter of 2018, the source said.

    The aerospace park with a proposed investment by Reliance of Rs 6,500 crore is expected to generate more than 10,000 skilled jobs, p'omoting 'Make in In'ia' and 'Skill India' initiatives of the government.

    Dassault Reliance JV has already shortlisted more than 200 vendors, mostly small and medium size enterprise to be part of the supply chain at DAAP.

    Apart from the Dassault Reliance offset facility, the park will also be home to proposed facilities with Thales, DAHER and Strata amongst others.

    The proposed projects in the first phase include production of aircraft, electronic warfare systems, radars, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), maintenance repair and overhaul for commercial aircraft and complete eco-system of tiered suppliers to support these large projects.

    Reliance will co-develop DAAP with the Maharashtra Airport Development Company (MADC) which is the nodal agency for developing the Mihan SEZ.

    Someone with no experience in Aerospace built the Mig 21bis, Jaguar, Su30MKI, attempted to build Tejas.

    Dassault on the other hand has an ocean of experience in Aerospace and building aircraft that do not crash.

    The only Private company which has some experience is TATA (TASL )
    which is making some parts and structures of C 130 ; Apaches

    Now that TATA has signed up with LM ; who do you think should have done this deal

    L and T is already in land and naval systems

    L&T and Tata shoud have got the Rafale contract, not some oil man whose biggest focus is on building a telecom company. This is crony capitalism - contract being given by modi on a 'suitcase to suitcase' basis.

    So that defeats the Whole SP Model

    You mean to say that only Tata and L and T should get all the contracts

    The SP model talks of Financial strength of a company

    Anil Ambani is already into Defence Shipyards ie Pipavav

    Yes. It's practically guaranteed. Of course, the RFP itself will be 'rigged' towards Rafale. You can't give the contract to Rafale without price discovery.

    And this facility is expected to cater to a ton of other aerospace projects, not just Rafale. In fact, defence production in this facility will be smaller that civilian production. A Falcon line may be set up earlier than a Rafale line.

    That's why DA will literally be holding RIL's hand the entire way, they are responsible for the work that DRAL will do, it is a 51-49 JV afterall.

    TASL's efforts are modest at best; some sub-assemblies for the global supply chains of some international OEMs is not overly impressive, they have no experience in final integration, in flight testing or after sales support; all of these things DRAL will take care of.

    DA will get RIL/DRAL up to where TASL is right now in a matter of months and exceed that level within 18 months.
