Re: Kaveri & Aero-Engine: News & Discussion

Just to put things in perspective, I remember to have read that the OLED screens had about 16-18% yield that too with repairs, and that was key reason that they were not coming up in TV space. This was a few years ago. Now the manufacturing must have been fine tuned. Engineering is all about doing ...

Re: HTT-40 Basic Trainer Aircraft: News & Discussions - 08 September 2019

20 plans to start training syllabus. That's fair bit of number. The requirement of flying hours is very high. Dont want to turn this into a rant.

We don’t want HAL to deliver the aircraft in ones and twos as that will not meet our training requirements. We would need at least 20 planes to begin training.
