HAL delivers two Dornier 228 planes to Guyana Defence Force

The Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) has delivered two Dornier 228 planes to the Guyana Defence Force, the country’s President Mohamed Irfaan Ali said on Monday.

Noteworthy, HAL is an Indian public sector aerospace and defence company, headquartered in Bangalore.

Established on 23 December 1940, HAL is one of the oldest and largest aerospace and defence manufacturers in the world.

The President Mohamed Ali shared the information along with photographs of the delivered aircraft in a post on X.

“The Hindustan Aeronautics Limited @HALHQBLR delivered two Dornier 228 planes to the Guyana Defence Force.

The planes arrived at Cheddi Jagan International Airport last evening aboard two Boeing C-17 Globemaster military transport planes,” he posted from his X handle.

The development comes more than a year after the Guyanese president and his delegation had visited an HAL facility in India.

“His Excellency Dr. Mohamed Irfaan Ali, President of the Cooperative Republic of Guyana (fourth from right) and his delegation visited HAL’s Kanpur Division and appreciated its technology prowess. The delegation showed keen interest in Hindustan 228 aircraft,” the HAL has posted on X on January 13, 2023.

Months later, a delegation from the HAL had visited and met President Ali, as a follow-up to his visit to India in early 2023.
