Sikorsky Aircraft Corp. and Tata Advanced Systems Ltd. formed a joint venture that will manufacture aerospace components for Sikorsky in India, including components for S-92 helicopter cabins. The new joint venture will be positioned to manufacture components for other aerospace OEMs as well as detailed parts for the Sikorsky S-92 cabin. It is expected that the joint-venture operations will be housed in a second greenfield facility that will be constructed in Hyderabad, next to the cabin assembly building. Construction for the joint-venture company’s facility is targeted for completion by 2011, with production beginning in late 2012.
