So this guy seems to have finally did it. I will admit, I was really skeptical about his success, but he probably surprised the nation through his efforts.

Funny thing is, I wonder where he is getting the talent from (probably through contacts) but I have never come across any job postings from this entity. I do admit, its been a while since I last checked.

Good for these guys. Hope they really take-off further...

Such a massive single order for Airbus from Indigo, but are there any benefits for Indian Aerospace Industry from such a significant order? The Chinese would have probably demanded a 2nd A320 assembly plant :)

https://www.airbus.com/newsroom/press-r ... craft.html

Excerpts from the article...
Toulouse – India’s IndiGo has placed a firm order for 300 A320neo Family aircraft. This marks one of Airbus’ largest aircraft orders ever with a single airline operator.

This latest IndiGo order comprises a mix of A320neo, A321neo and A321XLR aircraft. This will take IndiGo’s total number of A320neo Family aircraft orders to 730.


At least, GoI should have demanded a MRO place in desh (perhaps massive support for Air Works from Airbus) where all the Indigo planes could be serviced. I know Air Works are gradually ramping up their MRO capabilities, but I do hope, such a place like above already exists (been a little out of touch on MRO scene in India off lately).

I gather that the aircraft is mostly homebrew and a one off.

So just one prototype? Any clue on what his endgame might be? Did he want to just prove that he could build an aircraft or is he seriously looking for funding to take his project farther? Probably, he would be hoping for the latter but just trying to know about the real ground scenario.

Not that I know people regarding funding or I am in any position to help him...but just curious.
