Mahindra Aerospace makes debut appearance at Aero India 2011

Mahindra Aerospace Pvt. Ltd. (MAPL), a part of the $ US 7.1 billion Mahindra Group, made its debut at Aero India 2011, Asia’s premier Air Show, which is being held at the Yelahanka Air Force Base in Bangalore from February 9 to 13, 2011.
The centrepiece of the MAPL stall is the recently launched GA8 TC-320 Airvan which has been designed and built by GippsAero, an Australian company acquired by Mahindra in 2009.
“We are extremely proud to participate in Aero India for the very first time and showcase the GA8 TC-320 Airvan for aviation companies from across the globe. It has generated a great deal of interest amongst visitors and potential buyers who have been impressed by its reliable operations platform and low maintenance cost. In fact, it was flown from Australia to Bangalore for the Show, a clear validation of its strength and ruggedness,” said Mr. Arvind Mehra, Executive Director and CEO, Mahindra Aerospace Private Limited.
The Airvan is a unique 8-seat multi-role aircraft that can readily be converted to carry freight or passengers. Its global clientele find the aircraft ideal for a variety of operations including humanitarian relief, charter, tourism, medevac, aerosports (parajumping), surveillance, freight, and training.
With robust metallic construction and powered by the reliable Lycoming family of engines, the Airvan is available in either normally-aspirated or turbocharged variants. Both models offer unbeatable costs per seat-mile, ensuring an economical, low maintenance and reliable operations platform.
