BANGALORE: American company IndUS Aviation has launched its aviation complex, promoted as India's first ever aircraft showroom, and plans to manufacture light aircraft in India at "highly competitive costs" for export to the U.S. and other countries as well as for use in India.

IndUS will also facilitate the acquisition of personal and business aircraft, aero engines, avionics and other aviation parts and materials, and maintenance and support of small aircraft flying in India, the company said in its website.

IndUS was started in 1994 by Ram Pattisapu, managing director, who was born in India and immigrated to the U. S. with his family at the age of 13. He is a U.S. citizen, having lived there for over 35 years.

The business plan for IndUS involves the manufacture of light (two and four passenger) aircraft for flight training and personal use at "extremely competitive prices", it said.

"We aim to become the leading manufacturer of light aircraft for personal use and training worldwide", the company said.

It said IndUS has formed a strong working partnership with Taneja Aerospace and Aviation Ltd (TAAL) here, a private sector manufacturer of aviation products and aircraft in India.

While the manufacturing plant for parts and sub-assemblies for IndUS are located within the facilities of TAAL, the final assembly of aircraft for markets outside India is accomplished in IndUS' 11,000 square foot hangar facility at the Dallas Executive Airport in the US, it said.
