Request for answering survey questions come to you from the Rotary Wing Society of India. Before introducing Rotary Wing Society, allow me to introduce Legend Technologies (India) Pvt Ltd.
ABOUT LEGEND TECHNOLOGIES INDIA PVT LTD
Legend Technologies based in Bangalore is an AS9100D certified company that provides end-to-end and cost-effective solutions for the design and fabrication of aerospace assembly jigs, aerostructures, and high precision slip rings.
Dr. Enti Rangareddy, CMD of Legend Technologies, and his team noticed that civil registered helicopters in India account for less than 1% of the world’s civil helicopter fleet of over 34,000. India has tremendous potential for the growth of helicopter-based logistics services for men and materials. Under the ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ initiative of the Government of India, the Ministry of Defence has drawn a ‘Positive Indigenization List’ of 108 items and helicopters with All Up Weight below 3.5 tons (Single Engine Land Variant) part of this list.
M/S Legend Technologies has undertaken an extensive study of technologies and expertise available in the country and has decided to design and develop a Two-Seater Indian Ultra-Light Helicopter (IULH). They have signed MoU with the Government of Karnataka for the design, development, and manufacture of Two-Seater Light helicopters for civil and military applications. The vision of the leadership of Legend Technologies is to develop IULH and offer it to Indian users at a competitive price with low operating and maintenance costs.
Some of the conceived technical specifications of IULH are as follows:
- Number of Seats: Two
- Maximum All-Up Weight: 850 Kgs
- Useful Load (Pay Load + Fuel): 370 Kgs
- Range: 300 Kms
- Service Ceiling: 10000 ft
A Mumbai-based operator has already booked the first three helicopters to be produced by Legend Helicopters India Pvt Ltd.
