Brief History

Welcome to the Aircraft Manufacturing Division, Nasik of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited.

Aircraft Division Nasik, established in the year 1964 for licence manufacture of MiG-21FL aircraft & K-13 Missiles, is located at Ojhar, 24 kilometers from Nasik and approximately 200 kilometers from Mumbai in the state of Maharashtra. The division since then manufactured other MiG variants; viz MiG-21M, MiG-21 BIS, MiG-27 M and the state-of-the-art aircraft ie Su-30 MKI. Along with manufacturing, the division also carries out overhaul of the MiG series aircraft and started ROH of Su-30 MKI.

The Division is well laid out on a sprawling complex of 1,48,20,000 Sq. meters with a built-up area of 1,73,900 sq. meters having state-of-the-art plant/machinery/equipment and infrastructure. It has well qualified and trained manpower in different areas of aviation technology, viz design and development, manufacture and overhaul of aircraft, accessories and related products.

With the introduction of New a state-of-the art project ie Su-30 MKI and for smooth activities and operation of the division then  Aircraft  Division, Nasik is de-lineated into two Divisions viz Aircraft Manufacturing Division (AMD) for manufacturing activities  and Aircraft Overhaul Division (AOD) for Repair & Overhauling (ROH) activities.


Now, the Division is an independent profit-centre and is currently engaged in the following activities:
  • Manufacturing of Su-30 MKI Aircraft.
  • Supply of spares / units /consumables and aerospace fasteners.
  • Support to HAL and Non-HAL made aircraft of Russian Origin  in terms of Life extension, Modifications, Site Repairs and investigations.
  • Diversification into Civil Aircraft manufacture by taking up work packages.
  • Export of MiG spares to Egypt, Syria, Vietnam, Malaysia, Algeria, Poland & Russia.
So far the Division has manufactured more than 900 aircraft and supported the overhauling  activities for about 1900 aircraft.
