Airbus Helicopters and Hungary have signed a Memorandum of Agreement to create an industrial cooperation for long-term aviation projects that will initially focus on the production of certain high precision mechanical parts for helicopter dynamic systems.
This project is part of the ‘Zrinyi 2026’ armed forces development program supporting Hungary’s national security goals of developing independent defence capabilities.
The agreement intends to create a sustainable and integrated plant within Airbus. The green field production unit will start by manufacturing mechanical parts that will then be delivered to the major component assembly centre for dynamic parts to be fitted on to the various helicopters of the Airbus range that are operated in more than 150 countries worldwide. The agreement will also rely on a local supply chain being qualified to perform certain tasks such as surface treatment.
Hungary has been a long-standing supporter of Airbus’ civil and military products, which found a home in a wide range of defense and civil applications.Email Post to a Friend
