In 1992, when Nardi Costruzioni Aeronautiche, a leading Italian helicopter company, declared bankruptcy, EA purchased Nardi's hydraulic business and with it a design and qualification contract for the actuation systems and several other hydraulic accessories for the HAL Advanced Light Helicopter program (ALH).  EA fulfilled its responsibilities with complete success and became a fully qualified supplier for HAL since that time for both the Helicopter and Aircraft Division. 

In addition to the ALH EA is continuing its collaboration with HAL by participating to the  Light Utility Helicopter program, Light Combat Helicopter with its advanced hydraulic systems engineering and design.  EA and HAL also collaborate on development programs for fixed wing aircraft and accessories for various additional platforms (i.e. HTT-40, LCA Tejas).
Having delivered over 400 systems over the past years to HAL Helicopter Division, EA looks forward expanding and localising their MRO activity with HAL, particularly with reference to the Helicopter Division.
A branch office is in the process to be officially opened in Bangalore in the 1st quarter of 2019.
