100 cranes are the only aircraft that can fly in India, and the government has taken it upon itself to give them a name.
The cranes have been designed to make them safer, quieter and more efficient than the existing fleet.
The government has also launched a programme to make 100 crans a requirement in a new aircraft industry.
The first cranes were developed in the mid-1960s by the Tata Group, which was then India’s biggest private investor.
They were initially called Tata Aeroplanes, and were based on the Tata Falcon family of aircraft.
But the Indian government changed its name in 1985, and in 2002 Tata Aeroprojects Ltd (TATA) bought the Aeroplane Corporation of India (ACI) to become the maker of the cranes.
Today, Tata Aeropter has a turnover of $2.8 billion.
The first 100 crane models are scheduled to be made by Tata Aeromotive Ltd (TAGL) and the Tata Aerobaticy, which will be based in Bengaluru, according to an official statement.
The second 100 cran will be manufactured by Tata Advanced Aviation Limited (TAGAL).
Tata Aeroproducts Ltd, which is the sole producer of Tata Aerops cranes, is also developing 100 craning models.
Tata Aerodrome Ltd (TAAL) is also manufacturing cranes at the Bengaluru plant, which it has purchased from TATA.
The 100 cranies will be sold to government-owned and government-supported airlines.
The cranes will be made of aluminium and carbon fiber.
Tata’s cranes would have four wingtips, while TAGAL’s will have six.
They will be fitted with airbags, GPS, cameras, electronic sensors, radar and other equipment.
The CRANE is expected to be able to fly for more than 50 hours on a single charge.
