UTC Life Rafts First U.S. Aerospace Exports from India

UTC Aerospace Systems has become the first U.S. company to manufacture aerospace products in India under the terms of a bilateral aviation safety agreement (BASA) signed in 2011 by the U.S. FAA and India’s Director General of Civil Aviation (DGCA). The agreement gives blanket approval for manufacturing U.S. aerospace products in India, or vice versa. At a factory in Bangalore in southern India, UTC Aerospace Systems, which includes the former Goodrich businesses acquired last year, started making life rafts for business aircraft. Under the terms of the BASA, UTC and other U.S. companies are expected to start manufacturing a variety of products for general aviation aircraft, including seats, lighting and batteries.
