India to seek FAA certification for Dhruv helicopter

India will seek Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certification for the Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd (HAL) Dhruv helicopter.

The plan was announced by civil aviation minister Ajit Singh at a conference in Bengaluru, where HAL is headquartered.

The Dhruv, or advanced light helicopter (ALH), is a twin-engined, 5.5t helicopter designed for both military and civilian operations.

At February's Aero India show, HAL introduced a weaponised variant of the type called the Rudra, which is armed with a 20mm cannon in a chin turret.
