The helicopter division of HAL has received the first set of structures and sub-assemblies manufactured by HAL subsidiary, Naini Aerospace Limited (NAeL), Prayagraj for Dhruv, an advanced light helicopter.

 
The certificate of conformity of sub-assemblies and bottom structure assembly was formally handed to HAL CMD R Madhavan.
 
Director (HR), HAL and chairman (NAeL) V M Chamola commended the efforts of NAeL employees in acquiring skills in the difficult domain of manufacturing of aero-structures. With the handing-over of helicopter structures, NAeL has now developed capabilities in the field of aero-structures apart from aircraft loom manufacturing, he said.
 
Currently, NAeL is executing the HAL order for five sets of Dhruv helicopter structural assemblies.
 
The Naini unit of sick Hindustan Cables Limited was closed for 15 years and it was acquired by Naini Aerospace Limited (NAeL), a subsidiary of HAL on February 1, 2017. The ageing manpower of HCL was absorbed in the company and was provided with extensive training in aerospace sector. It commenced production activities of wire harnesses of helicopter and aircraft in July 2017 within five months after being taken over. The company had earlier made its maiden delivery of aircraft looms to HAL on March 27, 2018.  It has so far manufactured over 600 aircraft looms for ALH Dhruv and LCA Tejas aircraft.
