HAL, Safran signs MoU

HAL and France based Safran Aircraft Engines have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to study the manufacturing of components and the assembly of the M88 engine designed by Safran in India. Further, a transfer of technology is being considered as well. This partnership would help power any aircraft manufactured in India by HAL fitted with M88. Additionally, the agreement includes a partnership between HAL and Safran for the elaboration of the indigenous design of a 110 kN high thrust engine which could also power the future Advance Medium Combat Aircraft (AMCA), a fifth-generation combat aircraft currently under development by HAL.
