Bengaluru will have a new aerospace centre in what will be a further boost to its image as India’s aerospace hub. Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar inaugurated Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd’s (HAL) Centre for Aerospace Management Excellence and Leadership at Marathahalli here on Monday.

He said the HAL being the only aerospace giant in India, this new facility was the right step in training human resources to ensure the success of the ‘Make in India’ campaign. This new learning and development centre can become a focus of technology and management expertise in India, he added.

T Suvarna Raju, Chairman and Managing Director, HAL, said the state-of-the-art learning centre would promote technical skills, project management and competencies, product design and development.

“This reinvigorated focus will help to achieve our goals and build a robust aerospace ecosystem in India,” he added.

The campus is being built on 16 acres of land with 25,300 square metre built-up area at Marathahalli adjacent to the Indian Space Research Centre (Isro) campus. It will be an integrated campus with separate blocks for training, hostel, canteen, sports, auditorium and meditation hall.

 It will be a world-class facility and will promote design and engineering excellence with state-of-the art infrastructure.

The salient features of the centre include:

Computer labs, library and discussion halls, state-of-the-art classrooms with high-quality audio and video systems with streaming facility, hostel block with 300 twin-sharing executive accommodation with 150 rooms, including swimming pool, sports complex with indoor badminton court, table tennis and  gymna-sium and outdoor basketball and tennis court, traditional model auditorium with balcony for a seating capacity of 800.

At present, the academy functions out of its existing premises on Suranjan Das Road near Parrikar inaugurated Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd’ manufacturing facilities.
