Boeing offers to build 21st century aerospace ecosystem in India


Eyeing India’s multi-billion dollar fighter jet market, Boeing has offered to build a 21st century aerospace ecosystem in India for co-developing F/A-18 Super Hornet upgrades as part of the country’s advanced medium combat aircraft (AMCA) programme.

Two major American fighter jets manufacturers – Boeing andLockheed Martin – are in the race for the Indian fighter jet market. Lockheed Martin has offered to shift its entire F-16 manufacturing base from US to India.  “What we’re talking about is a complete ecosystem of capability – it’s building up supply chain, it’s building up engineering capacity, technical mechanical capacity.

It is bringing the build, not the kit, to India,” Marc Allen, president of Boeing International and a member of the Boeing Executive Council, told PTI. Read More
