General Manager of TAI Prof. Dr. Temel Kotil about IDEF’21:
“Our world is witnessing a different era. We are experiencing a period in which production and design continues unabated in the field of aerospace. Our company continues to contribute to the world aerospace industry with its original platforms developed based on R & Dec activities. IDEF is an important platform where these developments are shared and the pride projects of our country are introduced to the world public. Given the conditions of the pandemic, we are excited to participate in such a wide fair for the first time.We will exhibit the biggest project of our country, the National Combat Aircraft, at IDEF for the first time. We will take the TF-X (MMU), which is followed by the world public opinion, out of the hangar on March 18, 2023. ATAK 2 and HÜRJET will make their first flights on March 18, 2023. We look forward to sharing this excitement with our visitors who will attend IDEF.”
Turkish Aerospace Industry
Turkish Aerospace was incepted under the Ministry of Industry and Technology on June 28, 1973, to reduce Turkey’s foreign dependence in the defence industry. With the decision to use F-16 aircraft to meet the Turkish Air Force’s fighter aircraft need, Turkish Aerospace was incepted by TAI in 1984 for a period of 25 years as a Turkish-U.S. joint investment company to carry out the manufacture of F-16 aircraft, integration of on-board systems and flight tests.
Before the end of the 25-year period, Turkish Aerospace was restructured through the purchase of Turkish Aerospace’s foreign shares by Turkish shareholders in 2005. Thereunder, TAI and TUSAŞ were merged under Turkish Aerospace Inc. to broaden its activities and has become Turkey’s technology centre for the development, modernization, manufacture, system integration and lifecycle support of the aviation and space industry systems.
Being among the top hundred global players in the aviation and space industry, Turkish Aerospace is organized under six strategic business centres depending on the projects, including:
- Structural Group
- Aircraft Group
- Helicopter Group
- Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Systems Group
- Space Systems Group
- National Combat Aircraft (NCA) Group
In addition, integrated logistics support is provided for all products designed/manufactured by Turkish Aerospace.
