TAI Hürkuş Aircraft completes flight testing

Posted 8 September 2016 · Add Comment

Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) Hürkuş tandem two-seat trainer has completed all flight testing and obtained Type Certificate (TC) from the Turkish Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) with its validation certificate from the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA).

Each flight deck includes two Universal Avionics Radio Control Units (RCU) and two EFI-890R Advanced Flight Displays to be used as Primary Flight Displays (PFD).

 

“This is an exciting joint venture that outlines not only the diversity of Universal’s EFI-890R product line, but also TAI’s expertise in integrated aerospace systems and multi-mission platforms,” said Robert Clare, Universal Avionics Director of Sales. “We are very pleased to be a part of the New Generation Basic Trainer development programme.”

 

The primary and basic trainer aircraft was designed and manufactured by TAI and is a low wing and single engine turboprop aircraft. The aircraft is primarily being built to meet the requirements of the Turkish Air Force Command (TAF). It will be used to execute basic pilot training, instrument flying, navigation training, and weapons and formation training missions. In addition, the TAI Hürkuş will be exported as a civilian and military flight trainer aircraft.
