Indian Navy’s P-8i Fleet host to Boeing and Air Works collaboration
- Air Works, an Indian maintenance, repair, and overhaul (MRO) company, is partnering with the Boeing Company to conduct heavy maintenance checks on three Indian Navy P-8I long-range maritime patrol aircraft at Air Works, Hosur, demonstrating the success of the government’s Atmanirbhar Bharat (self-reliant India) campaign.
- This significantly expands the scope and size of MRO in India, demonstrating both firms’ commitment to helping India achieve Aatmanirbhar status in aerospace and defence.
- The partnership between Boeing and Air Works has resulted in quicker turnaround times and increased operating capability for important defence platforms in India.
- The relationship began with checks on the P-8I Poseidon aircraft and has since expanded to include checks and MRO on the Indian Air Force’s Boeing 737 VVIP aircraft’s landing gear.
