The year 2007 marked the ‘entry into service’ for the engineering team. Since then the team has grown strongly and steadily, with more than 900 engineers.

 The engineering team at Airbus India supports all the three divisions - Commercial, Helicopters and Defense and Space – while also working with other Airbus entities, including in France, Germany, UK, Spain, Canada, China and the United States, making the Bengaluru engineering team an integral part of Airbus. 

A larger part of the engineering team activities is for commercial aircraft. We provide engineering solutions to our global Centers of Competencies for Flight Physics, Airframe, Systems, Flight Test and Propulsion. We work with Customer Services, Manufacturing Engineering and other Airbus subsidiaries in areas such as resolving the in-service issues, checking the air-worthiness of the aircraft, etc. We support the design cycle of most of our Airbus aircraft such as the A220, A320, A330, A350 and Beluga. We also support new programmes such as the A321XLR and A350F along with Research & Technology and Innovation, which will enable future projects such as the ZEROe aircraft.

Additionally, Airbus India engineering supports two of its dedicated design centres – AXISCADES and QuEST as Centres of Excellence – for fuselage and wing respectively.
