- A manufacturing capability, which is a first for any aerospace and defence manufacturer in the country
Ahmedabad, November, 03, 2022 – Jaivel Aerospace has won a contract with Boeing to manufacture and supply aircraft protection system products for the T-7A Red Hawk aircraft. Working with the Boeing team in India and the U.S., Jaivel Aerospace has developed an entirely new capability for this product range, a first for any aerospace and defence manufacturer in the country. The aircraft protection systems will be manufactured by Jaivel at their state-of-the-art, advanced manufacturing facility “Inspire One”, at Sanand Industrial Estate in the city of Ahmedabad in Gujarat.
“The entire Jaivel Aerospace team is extremely proud to be part of the Boeing T-7A program. This is the first new capability development project, undertaken by our newly launched advanced manufacturing facility “Inspire One”. The credit for this goes to the Boeing and Jaivel teams that collaborated to achieve this goal, defying challenges posed by the pandemic.” said Vipul Vachhani, Founder & CEO, Jaivel Aerospace. “T7 is the next generation of pilot training platform, which provides an excellent opportunity for us to utilize our intelligent manufacturing technologies for T7 aircraft protection systems,” he added.
The T-7A Red Hawk is an all-new advanced pilot training system designed for the U.S. Air Force that will train the next generation of fighter and bomber pilots for decades to come. Designed using a digital thread, the T-7A aligns with the U.S. Air Force’s Digital Century Series strategy by enabling the integration of new concepts and capabilities faster and more affordably through virtual testing.
“Boeing’s sourcing from India stands at $1 billion annually through its large and growing network of more than 300 supplier partners, that are an integral part of our global supply base. These partners are manufacturing and exporting systems and components for some of Boeing’s most advanced products from India to the world. Our partnership with Jaivel for manufacturing aircraft protection system for T-7A Red Hawk is another true example that supports the Prime Minister’s call for “Make in India, for the World”,” said Ashwani Bhargava, senior director, Supply Chain Management, Boeing India.
