Aviation is one of the most significant technological influences of our time and empowers the nation with strength. It is a major tool for economic development and has a significant role in National security and international relations. India has been fortunate to have started aeronautics related activities in 1940, with the establishment of HAL. The Company was conceived by the visionary and far sighted industrialist, Sir Walchand Hirachand in Dec 1940 in association with the then Govt. of Mysore.
For six decades, HAL has spread its wings to cover various activities in the areas of Design, Development, Manufacture and Maintenance of advanced fighters, piston and jet engine trainers, commercial aircraft, helicopters and the associated aero engines, aircraft systems, equipment and avionics. The 14 manufacturing units are fully supported by nine R & D centres. HAL’s product track record consists of 12 types of aircraft from in-house R&D and 13 types by license production inclusive of eight types of aero engines and over 900 items of Aircraft System Equipment (Avionics & Accessories).
HAL has so far produced over 3,400 aircrafts, 3,100 aero engines and overhauled over 7,000 aircrafts and 23,000 aero engines along with related systems and equipment.
Recognising the business opportunities offered by the growth of Civil Aviation, HAL has embarked on a programme for the coproduction of 50-70 seater aircraft with a partner, and is also slated with partners for co development and manufacture of 100 seater aircraft. HAL has gradually undergone a metamorphosis and grown into a major aeronautical complex with fully integrated facilities for design, development manufacture and maintenance. The Company recorded a turn over of more than Rs. 2400 crores in 2000-2001.
HAL is comparable admirably to international aerospace companies like BAE Systems, Pratt & Whitney, Boeing, Rolls Royce and Honey Well as well as some Indian private sector companies such as Reliance with regard to key financial parameters such as PBT to sales, PBIT to capital employed, earning per share, Debt. Equity ratio etc. This reflects the sound financial health of the Company.
Design capabilities, modern facilities and skills combines with competitive pricing and prompt deliveries, make HAL a valuable partner for challenging programmes in Aerospace and related fields.
Our vision is to collaborate with the others in these fields for mutual benefit.
