    Reasons & Advantages of having civil airliners:
    • Platform for Indian AEW&S systems.
    • PRC & Japan have already started using own regional Airliners, why India must remain for foreign vendors.
    • About 310 million Indians will have to fly by 2026.
    • Competing in international market with cheaper products, India always holds the plus point of low cost in whichever industry it jumps.
    • Development of heavy flyers on current platform.
    • Development of Special mission like V-22 Osprey from USA or Chinese supersonic tilt rotorcraft in development.

    We need to develop the RTA or else we'll be stuck buying Bombardiers & Embraers.

    Yup, different designs in every source.

    I guess we must wait.for getting structures of 70, 90 & 100-200 seater versions.

    The best design for any four engine plane or for that matter for any kind of amphi plane has been Dornier DO-26 seaboat. Four engines mounted on two pods of two engine each in tractor+pusher configuration. Such an arrangement will result in least control problems in case of engine failure and provide best flight performance.

    Desi Commercial Aviation Sector in India is so neglected that I don't think even 5% of our potential has been realised...

    There isn't even a proper strategy from the government...Not even a dedicated desi civilian agency like the COMAC...(NAL is nowhere near COMAC)


    There seems to be talk of reviving the horrendous tragedy that the SARAS was....While the RTAs remain on paper Only....


    The Private Sector with Mahindra's Civil Aviation Division being something to look forward to....Will need help of the government with Preferential Policies for Local Designers and Manufacturing...


    I wish that the RTAs or Other Similar Projects are ready by 2055-2060 Timeframe.....I want to fly domestically in a proper desi passenger jet....Before I die....

    First Airbus Training Centre in Asia to be set up in New Delhi

    Airbus is setting up a greenfield training facility at Aerocity, New Delhi, to support India’s growing need for Airbus aircraft pilots and maintenance engineers. The ground-breaking for the Airbus India Training Centre was performed by P. Ashok Gajapathi Raju, Minister of Civil Aviation and Tom Enders, CEO, Airbus in the presence of Jayant Sinha, Minister of State for Civil Aviation.
    Speaking on the occasion, the Minister of Civil Aviation, Shri P. Ashok Gajapathi Raju said that India’s rapidly growing passenger aircraft fleet must be matched by adequate availability of skilled pilots and maintenance engineers. Airbus’ pilot and maintenance engineering training center is the type of facility which will help augment the talent pool of such personnel and thus be a force multiplier for the Indian aviation sector. He also wanted Airbus to think of creating MRO facility in India to take forward the Make in India policy of the Government, as this would create employment opportunity.
    Tom Enders, CEO, Airbus said that we have only scratched the surface when it comes to the growth of civil aviation in India. This training centre will be the first such facility fully owned by us in Asia. It is a symbol of our enduring partnership with this country.
    India is the fastest growing domestic aviation market in the world and is expected to continue to grow at an annualised 9.3% over the next 20 years, outpacing the world average of 4.6%. The number of trips per capita in India is expected to quadruple by 2035 due to a combination of economic and demographic factors.
    To cater to this huge demand, Airbus forecasts a requirement for at least 1,600 new passenger and freighter aircraft by 2035. The consequent increase in Indian in-service aircraft fleet will lead to an accompanying need for over 24,000 new pilots and maintenance engineers.
    The almost 7000 m2 Airbus India Training Centre will be built in a modular concept in order to become operational by end-2018 with two A320 full flight simulators, increasing to four and potentially to six simulators in due course. It will start with an initial capacity to train over 800 pilots and 200 maintenance engineers annually. The centre will cater primarily to Airbus operators in India and the region. Airbus has more than 250 aircraft in service in India and over 570 are on order by Indian airlines.
