Aerospace giants eye Indian market, manpower

Bangalore: With the procurement of the multi billion dollar, Multi Role Combat Aircraft (MRCA) by the Air Force — that has dominated the last three editions of the Aero India — now out of the way, the biennial show is set to focus on more mundane things like global shortfall of aerospace engineers, unmanned aerial vehicles, and civil aviation.
The shift of focus of the air show from top notch fighter jet technologies to emerging concerns is evident not just in the line up of aircraft for the main event, set to begin on February 6, but also during the seminar and meetings that began on Monday.
President of Royal Aeronautical Society in the UK Phil Boyle, who spoke at the opening of the technical programme of the seminar, outlined civil aviation and unmanned aerial vehicles as the key areas of growth for the industry.
