HAL stacks up helicopter orders

12th September 2016 - 10:20 GMT | by Neelam Mathews in Delhi


The recent technical flight of the Bangalore-built Light Utility Helicopter (LUH) on 6 September could result in Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) winning an order for nearly 200 additional units from the military. This is in addition to a current order for 187 LUHs.

Entire production of the indigenous 3t LUH will be shifted to HAL’s new helicopter
