The first track is completely finished. It is 3 thousand 500 meters long. An area of 75 meters wide. Earthworks have also been completed on the second track. Work is ongoing right now. More than 500 staff are working. There is work at every point; terminal buildings and service roads are being completed. A trial flight was carried out 30 meters above for the first runway. A test flight was carried out 5 days ago, but it could not land on the ground because the lines were not drawn. The track thickness is sufficient and has been tested. A study according to our climate. If it was asphalt, it would have been melting, but it will not be such a problem because it is concrete. We think the planes can land in the tests a month later. ” (Soner Aydın - the Mersinhaberc)
