Mumbai, June 11 The Indian Air Force (IAF) is getting ready to induct the first batch of the AH-64E (I) – Apache Guardian helicopter in its stable next month. The entire delivery of these helicopters will be completed by March 2020. The Indian private sector has a significant role in the production of these attack helicopters. On Monday, Indian company Rossell Techsys delivered a high-quality component — the 1000th electrical panel for the AH-64 Apache to Boeing. The company has been a longstanding Boeing supplier in India, since 2013 and the contract for AH-64 Apache components were awarded in March 2017 and another contract for the V-22 Osprey components in August of the same year. Earlier this year the company had delivered the 15,000th wire harness to Boeing for the AH-64 Apache. Says Salil Gupte, president, Boeing India, “Boeing remains committed to investing in India’s supplier capability and a local work-force across manufacturing engineering services, training and skills development, to create a world-class aerospace ecosystem in India.” In an earlier interaction, Boeing officials had told Financial Express Online that Boeing has invested significantly in the development of a robust aerospace ecosystem in India with over 160 existing industrial partners.
