TAPPING TALENT


“The Boeing HorizonX India Innovation Challenge 1.0 is our attempt to channelise
India’s incredible talent and entrepreneurial energy for the future of innovation in
aerospace and related areas”

PRATYUSH KUMAR, President, Boeing India on how Boeing is moving to unleash a wave of innovation

TILTROTOR FOR ALL REASONS


“This 400,000-flight hour milestone is an incredible testament to the V-22’s leap-ahead
capability and is a tribute to the men and women of Bell Helicopter and Boeing who build

and support tiltrotor aircraft. The Osprey brings unprecedented range, speed and survivability to


the warfighter and will continue to excel in combat and in executing some of the most difficult
humanitarian operations”

VINCE TOBIN
Executive Vice President, Military Programmes, Bell Helicopter on the Osprey

RIGHT ON TIME


“The KC-390 sets new standards in the market and the flight test campaign is progressing
extremely well matching the aircraft design goals. We are very satisfied with the maturity
that this product has already reached and fully confident that its certification will be
achieved as scheduled”

JACKSON SCHNEIDER
President and CEO, Embraer Defense & Security on the KC-
performance

MULTI-TASKER INDEED!


“Negotiations with Airbus had been completed on the basis of the in-principal approval given
by the government and an RFP (request for proposal) that was floated. We will be buying six
aircraft, and may buy two more under the option clause later”
