Results of Make in India : Saab offers Gripen fighter jets under 'Make in India' with full control (Technology Transfer)

Swedish defence major Saab has offered to manufacture its fifth generation Gripen fighter aircraft here with technology transfer to India, in a renewed bid for a pie in the multi-billion dollar worth IAF modernisation plan. Saab is not only offering to set up a base here but also help in the development of aerospace capability for the next 100 years and partner in developing the next version of indigenous Light Combat Aircraft Tejas and the Advanced Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA), being developed and designed by Aeronautical Development Agency.

Besides Saab, US' Lockheed Martin and the France's Dassault Aviation have offered their jets in line with the government's push for 'Make in India'.

We at AeSI Alumni Association once again thank Saab and our prime minister to make 'Make in India' a big success.

Results of Make in India : Aequs sign pact to supply components for Boeing's Chinook helicopter

Dutch firm Fokker Technologies, a division of GKN Aerospace, and aerospace manufacturer Aequs on December 17, 2015 signed an agreement to supply machined components for Boeing's Chinook heavy lift helicopter that India is also buying. Under the Long Term Agreement (LTA), Aequs will supply machined detail parts which will be made in India for the Chinook heavy lift helicopter.

Moreover Aequs Aerospace has also opened a new aerospace machining facility at its special economic zone (SEZ) in Belagavi, which strengthens Aequs' position in the market and the largest supplier to Airbus for aerospace machined components and sub-assemblies in the country. Aerospace component manufacturing company Aequs Aerospace will invest $50 million over the next five years to manufacture aerospace machined components in a new facility at its special economic zone (SEZ) in Belagavi. This facility is exclusively for France's Airbus, has the capacity to house 150 CNC (computerized numerical control) machines and generate revenue of $75 million annually. Several components for the Airbus' A320 and A380 are manufactured at the Belagavi facility. Airbus has also been sourcing doors for its single aisle aircraft family from Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) for several years now. 

This is just the beginning. We at AeSI Alumni Association congratulate our prime minister for such a great initiative which strongly emphasize on design and make in India.

And there today this group has 60+ ppl. I am amazed. And I am happy, something I started and got support of friends and that helped me and many of U in the group, directly or indirectly. I thank one and all for this trust and integrity. Now I am thinking to expand this group and so here is the announcement.

Update on CSRP

If you are following myaesi blog, you might be aware of the CSRP program. 

We had a great response from the AeSI students and recent graduates. After the responses were closed the students thoughts on their selected projects were shared with mentors and they finally made the selection. 

We have selected 14 students/graduates for 6 exciting projects. The projects range from propulsion, CFD, FEM and data analysis. 

Below is the text of the email the selected applicants have received. Please check your email if you have applied and were selected. 

This is first such kind of initiative by AeSIAA and we hope everyone participating in the program will find benefit and will come out richer in experience and knowledge. 

As this being the first such program, we expect to learn as much from it as the selected students. For those who couldn't make it in this edition of CSRP, don't be disheartened, we plan to roll out the next CSRP during winter. 


Hi All

Thanks for your interest in the first edition of CSRP. If you are reading this email, it means you have been selected by the mentors after reading your submission for the collaborative student research program.

Congratulations. We were seeking collaborative partners for pursuing our academic and research interest and we believe we have found that in you.  

Just like the projects in the industry, most of the projects in CSRP will involve programming, learning new software and methods. So be prepared to accelerate your learning with this program. 

The pace of the program is going to be intensive with daily progress briefing and discussions. 

A full commitment of efforts and time by the participants throughout the program is strongly expected.

Only a limited number of applicants are selected and hope you will do justice to the choice. 

Welcome to the program. You will receive further notice in few days

Effort and Learning

As a rule, the more effort you make, the more you learn.

It's true for studies, for any skill building and for acquiring knowledge.

It is with this in mind that collaborative student research program (CSRP) was conceived.

There's a common consensus that students of AeSI lack practical knowledge and to some extent it's true. For me it was definitely true.

I thought I had good knowledge and skill when I applied for NAL as a trainee. But latter realized how false those assumptions were. NAL was the time that I learnt the most, acquired varied skills and got close to what I enjoyed the most.

Working there wasn't easy but it sure brought me lot of benefits.

CSRP is designed with that goal. Mentor will choose a practical problem from his work or academic pursuits and collaborate with a willing student to solve that problem. A win win situation for both, mentors problem solved and student has a practical experience of working on an actual problem.

The program won't be easy. It's not for everyone. Not everyone who enrolls will get to participate. But I am sure it will be a great learning experience for anyone who chooses to participate in it.

Intrigued, please check for more information and then shoot an email to

How are you preparing for 2020

For those who were part of the AeSI AGM in 2014 might have heard this at the venue.  For the rest here’s a snippet..


G M Rao, GMR chairman and current President of Aeronautical Society of India.


Addressing the annual general meeting (AGM) of the Aeronautical Society of India (AeSI), Rao said that India was poised to become the third largest aviation market in the world by 2020. The total spending in the next two decades was expected to be $25 billion for commercial aircraft and $100 billion as defence expenditure.


He, however, said that the biggest challenge to meet the enormous growth potential of aerospace and defence sector would be skilled workforce. Though India has ample technically trained manpower, “there is dearth of personal with specialised skills, particularly in the sphere of aerospace”, he added.



So what does this mean for you?


And here's a question for you.  How are you preparing for 2020?
