India’s Dhruv fleet was grounded in December after Hindustan Aeronautics (HAL) identified a fault in the tail rotor blades. Investigation following a November accident led HAL to issue a technical advisory to all operators of the medium twin helicopter.

At press time, defense production secretary K. P. Singh confirmed that “the faults have been rectified and the helicopter will be flying again within days.”

HAL teams continue to market the helicopter abroad, particularly in Russia and Chile.
