Hurkus achieves design certification for TAI

Posted 21 July 2012 · Add Comment

Turkish manufacturer TAI has been awarded the EASA design certification for its new military trainer the Hurkus.

TAI applied EASA in 2007 for Design Organization Certification, which certifies that the aircraft design process was performed within the approved regulations and standards.

Since then, TAI has successfully passed all the audits that were performed by the specialists of the European and Turkish Authorities, EASA and SHGM, and was awarded with the privilege to design an aircraft complying with international safety regulations. This authorization is the first of its kind that has been awarded to Turkey.

The Certificate confirms that TAI complies with the international standards starting from concept phase to the flight tests through to type certification.

In a statement the company said that all approved regulations and standards will form the basis for TAI’s future development programmes such as regional jet or fighter jets.
