Boost for Make in India as FAA clears two plane parts

Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s ‘Make in India’ initiative in aviation is set to get a boost with the Federal Aviation Administration approving, for the first time, two aircraft parts developed in India for use by manufacturers in the United States.

The two products approved by the regulator are a four-person life raft developed by the Indian arm of UTC Aerospace Systems (UTAS), and nickel-cadmium batteries developed by Hyderabad-based HBL Power Systems.
Currently, aircraft parts exported from India are subject to multiple checks and have to be certified by FAA or European Aviation Safety Agency — depending on where the aircraft is being assembled — before being used by manufacturers in these places.
