HAL’s Light Utility Helicopter to prove its mettle at plane carnival


The Light Utility Helicopter (LUH), the youngest rotary wing sibling flying out of Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) hangars, is all set to strut its stuff during the upcoming 12th edition of Aero India. This will be the second outing for LUH during the plane carnival. Aero India is set to take off at Air Force Station, Yelahanka, on February 20.

During a recent visit by Onmanorama to HAL’s Rotary Wing Research and Design Centre (RWRDC) here in Bengaluru, the designers and flight test crew confirmed that LUH is back after successfully completing the cold weather trials at Leh, last month.

“During the high-altitude weather trials at Leh recently, LUH was cold-soaked for 48 hours at minus 20 degrees. It had a very successful engine start and we recorded flawless performance of all systems,” Arup Chatterjee, Director Engineering and R&D, HAL, said. Read More
