For better upkeep of Army choppers, MoD okays two heli-hubs


  • The Army is creating heli-hubs for their maintenance in operational areas near the borders.
  • The proposal to establish two such heli-hubs, one each in the Northern Command and the Eastern Command, has been approved by Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar.
  • The establishment of these two heli-hubs will enhance the serviceability of the helicopter fleet by around 25%.
  • This reduces the operational availability of helicopters, which are in high demand in the inaccessible mountainous areas like Jammu and Kashmir, and the Northeast.
