India’s Tata Sons has formed a joint venture with Sikorsky to make parts, including cabin components, for Sikorsky’s S-92A and other aircraft, including those from other OEMs, beginning in 2012. In an agreement announced last month, Tata Advanced Systems (TASL) and Sikorsky said they would construct a new parts-manufacturing facility in Hyderabad in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Earlier this year Sikorsky announced a deal for TASL to assemble the S-92 cabin in Hyderabad beginning next year. The new parts plant is expected to be located next to the S-92 cabin assembly building there.
