    IAF and Navy to Purchase more Dornier Aircraft : AK Antony | idrw.org
    ~
    There is a proposal to procure 14 Dornier Aircraft from M/s Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) for the purpose of training pilots of the Indian Air Force (IAF). Additionally, there is also a proposal to procure two more Dornier Aircraft, modified to calibratenavigational aids at IAF airfields from M/s HAL. Besides, Indian Navy has a plan to purchase 12 Dornier Aircraft from M/s HAL.
    Since Dornier Aircraft’s are being manufactured indigenously by M/s HAL, these have not been purchased from any other country during past five years.
    Dornier Transport aircraft are already being manufactured indigenously by M/s HAL since 1983-84.
    This information was given by Defence Minister Shri AK Antony in a written reply to Shri PR Natarajan in Lok Sabha today.
