Jerusalem, Aug. 4. (PTI): Israel is mulling to induct Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) manufactured Advance Light Helicopter 'Dhruv' for transporting senior defence officials and VIPs.

"Since Israel Aircraft Industries (IAI) and HAL have started a joint company for the marketing of the Druv, the option of using their services will be checked on the basis of rental of the services of one helicopter, at this stage," Defence Ministry spokesperson Rachel Ashkenazi said.

However, she said the issue of VIP air transport was being examined.

IAI, committed to reciprocal procurement from India following the purchase of Phalcon early warning system, is negotiating with the Ministry of Defence on the deal.

The Israeli aircraft company is expected to procure the helicopters at a low price given its association in building the international version of Dhruv, Israeli business daily 'Globes' online reported.

IAI had supplied the avionics system and glass cockpit for the global version of the ALH and is jointly marketing the product.

It is good news for HAL and the start of aircrafts export for India. HAL has already exported Dhruv to Nepal.
