A Youtube video reporting that a light business jet model GLJ-3X1 will be on display at the Aero Show. It is being developed by Bangalore based Genser Aeropsace. If true then this is a well kept secret as there was no previous news about it. Model looks very TFTA and the specs are: 7+2 seater with twin turbofan engines having cruise speed of 840 kmph and a range of 4100 km.

I highly doubt commercial feasibility of such project. Small biz jet is rather low volume segment.

This is what I had hoped for Saras to morph into. Except I was thinking of commuter jet.

Jay I read somewhere that the total demand expected of such planes is roughly about 8,000 planes world wide.

^^Worldwide, yes. India, no. We don't also have infra to support large scale usage of many biz jets in near future. All our big Airports are already cramped for slots. And hardly anyone would want them for tier-1/2 cities. Any ab initio project from India will find it rather difficult to compete outside India against well established commercial OEMs in this segment.

I feel small private companies have better chances if they try to innovate in new areas rather than being me too types, copying tried and tested models. IMO in India we need minimum D0-228/Saras class prop airplanes which can be used to connect cities in areas which cannot host jet aircrafts for various restrictions like altitude and do not have scale to fill 200 seater planes regularly. Too small planes like this won't offer economy on such routes I feel.

Just my opinion. Its hard to survive in India in A&D. Its good to see people being ambitious but at the same time it would be sad to see them perish due to lack of support and all efforts/money being wasted ultimately.

It seems like in Feb 2nd week, Abu Dhabi Air show will be happening as well. Many international companies have requested AI folks to post pone our show by a few days to a week so that they can better plan logistics of attending two shows...also since in terms of commercial value/market, Abu Dhabi far exceeds AI (which onlee serves India) and hence the above request onlee. Also, similar request have been put forth by some desi companies as well although in a much more mellower tone...since for desi companies, India is the primary market.

Jay, I doubt Genser can pull their Bizjet thing off...they have a very small team and I am sure it would have known if they are hiring in numbers (like I mentioned in another thread...even the half or quarter the numbers) required to pull off such a venture. BTW, there is a small start up called General Aeronautics...they are developing much more grounded & less ambitious products and I know personally that one of their product is an advanced stage of WT/loading tests.

I was trying to be nice by not mentioning this. :D Any company which could pull such feat would have come on my Radar too, much earlier. I have heard name of this company previously in some general context. Well, I have seen far more ridiculous pet projects in past by delusional folks, this one is still within the realm of reality. :mrgreen:

I hope they prove me wrong.

Looks like the Saudi-Ukranian JV An-132 is coming to the show this year.

Always thought this was a lost opportunity consudering the numbers and the years we had operated the An-32.

https://bangaloremirror.indiatimes.com/bangalore/others/so-whats-gonna-fly-high-at-aero-india-2019/amp_articleshow/66700113.cms

On display from HAL

According to the organisers, the Advanced Light Helicopter (ALH MK IV), Light Combat Helicopter (LCH), Light Utility Helicopter (LUH), HAWK-I and the basic trainer aircraft, Hindustan Turbo Trainer (HTT-40) will be on display during the air show. The LCH, LUH and the HTT-40 is awaiting certification and is yet to be inducted into the Indian Air Force.


Surprised no Tejas. But a nice lineup nonetheless.

What IAF is shopping for

During the 2019 edition, the aircraft expected to participate in the show would be from the six companies who have responded to the IAF’s Request for Information (RFI) for 110 multi-role fighter jets. These include Boeing (F/A-18 Super Hornet), SAAB Aviation’s (Gripen), Eurofighter Typhoon, Lockheed Martin (F-16 Fighting Falcon) and Russia’s Mig-35, who have responded to the RFI.


Here we go again. Might get news on possible frontrunners. Please no Gripen or Fulcrum.

Tejas will be part of the show...either flown by ADA Test Pilots or IAF ones. I really hope MiG-35 will be at AI as well...even though it likely won't be selected. Would love to see its display close-up. AI-19 may be like redeux of AI-11 when all contestants of MMRCA 1.0 flew and it was awesome.

A-400 & the big Antonov will be nice. Just dreading the parking space problem and the view clutter they'll cause.

The big Antonov is in India! On a job for the IAF at Chandigarh.

Probably too far off in future to stay for the Bangalore aeroshow in Feb. lol.

I have seen it in Bangalore a few times too. ISRO often uses its services. The 124 is such a beautiful aircraft in spite of its size.
