    This happened 10 days ago. Smile Anka made emergency landing because engine failure happened in the flight. Turkish Aerospace Industries said ''The aircraft will be repaired in a short time''.

    TAI Hürkuş (New Generation Basic Trainer)



    New Generation Basic Trainer (HÜRKUŞ) Development Program contract was signed between the Undersecretariat for Defense Industries and TAI in March 2006. HÜRKUŞ with day and night mission capability; instrument flight, navigation and formation training phases will be realized.

    Within the framework of the program; two aircraft configurations are being developed.

    - HÜRKUŞ-A: Basic version which is to be certified with EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency) according to CS-23 requirements.
    - HÜRKUŞ-B: Advanced version with integrated avionics (including HUD, MFDs, and Mission Computer).

    Following the completion of taxi tests, the first aircraft of HÜRKUŞ-A Configuration successfully performed its first flight on August 29, 2013 at TAI's facilities. Consequent to the flight permission of SHGM (Turkish Civil Aviation General Directorate) and EASA the first flight, which lasted 33 minutes, was performed with open landing gear position at a height of 9500 ft. During the flight, the first checks were performed on control surfaces and a successful landing was realized.

    The second aircraft has performed its first flight on September 10, 2014.

    530 sorties have been performed with 2 prototype aircraft. During these flights 567 flight hours, 356 knot, 35.500 ft and 6.3 g values have been tested. System functional tests, stability and control checks, emergency procedures, low speed, stall, spin tests, performance tests, air start, aerobatics and operations, high speed and flutter checks have been performed.

    Full scale static tests and fatigue and damage tolerance tests have been performed with 2 different structural aircraft.

    545 documents have been produced and approved by EASA and SHGM. Also maintenance documents are ready for usage.

    The type certificate from EASA and SHGM has been taken on 11 July 2016.

    The acceptance phase of the aircraft is ongoing with SSM.

    As a resolution of SSIK's meeting, held on Sept. 26, 2013, in order to meet the 15 new-generation trainer aircraft requirement of TurAF, contract regarding the serial production of HÜRKUŞ was signed with TAI. The production and assembly of the serial aircraft are ongoing.



    Design Features:

    - Superior aerodynamic performance, TAI designed wing airfoil
    - 1,600 shp PT6A-68T Pratt & Whitney Canada turboprop engine
    - Five bladed aluminum Hartzell HC-B5MA-3 propeller
    - Martin-Baker Mk T-16 N 0/0 ejection seats
    - Inverted Flight
    - Good visibility from both cockpits, 50 down-view angle from rear cockpit
    - Comfortable accommodation of wide range of pilot sizes
    - Pressurized cockpit (nominal 4.16 psid)
    - On-Board Oxygen Generating System (OBOGS)
    - Anti-g System
    - Environmental Control System (Vapor Cycle Cooling)
    - Strengthened canopy for bird strike resistance
    - High shock absorbing landing gears for training missions
    - Hands On Throttle and Stick (HOTAS)

    Its time for ANKA-B

    Turkish Aerospace Industries’ MALE class, medium level air platform, which has wide operational range and long endurance, ANKA’s new Synthetic aperture radar-integrated (SARPER) version completed its acceptance tests. A new era had begun for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in the scope of 2. Package MALE Development Project, signed on 24 December 2004 between TAI and Undersecreteriat of Defence Industry (SSM). With a new technology that allows radar signals to form a visual image, ANKA-B UAV was provided with a over-clouds intelligence, survelliance and reconaissance (ISR) capability in all weather conditions and day & night. Thus, the clouding issue restricting ISR capability has been solved for UAVs.

    Turkey orders 30 additional F-35 fighter jets as part of counterterrorism efforts

    National Defense Minister Fikri Işık has informed the Parliamentary Planning and Budget Committee on Thursday that an additional 30 F-35 Joint Strike Fighter (JSF) jets have been ordered in the scope of counterterrorism operations, amid Turkey's determined efforts against all means of terrorism including the PKK, Daesh, the Gülenist Terror Group (FETÖ) and the Revolutionary People's Liberation Party (DHKP-C).Speaking during budget talks with the Parliamentary Planning and Budget Committee, Minister Işık reaffirmed the government's determination on counterterrorısm operations saying, "The bloody terror organization [referring to the PKK] has suffered more casualties recently than in the past 35 years. Turkey has become one of the leading countries in its fight against terrorism. We will continue our counterterrorism efforts until the end."

    In that respect, Minister Işık advised the deputies during the committee's talks that Turkey is part of the international co-development program for the procurement of F-35 JSF jets in which a total of 30 have been ordered. "Six jets have been ordered and the first two will be received by 2018. An additional order for 24 F-35 jets has been agreed upon and eight jets will be received per year for the next three years," Işık added. Furthermore, as part of the ongoing operations against FETÖ members in the military Işık said that over 20,000 military personnel have been dismissed from the Turkish Armed Forces (TSK) so far. While stating that those dismissed include 3,665 army personnel and 16,423 military students, Işık said the probes into 2,885 personnel are continuing.

    Touching upon the Mosul operation against Daesh, the Turkish defense minister stressed that, "The political environment which was poisoned by foreign interventions is continuing to be affected by sectarian policies, causing inexplicable suffering and various conflicts with our brotherly nation of Iraq. Iraqi polarization on the basis of ethnicity, religion and sects is the major obstacle ahead of the country's stability." Işık further underlined that the ongoing instability in Iraq - like that in Syria - is increasing the threat caused by terror groups like Daesh and the PKK, thus, leading Turkey to take necessary measures. However, he stressed that the measures Turkey has taken to establish its own national security has been taken in respect to Iraq's territorial integrity, unity and stability.
