Year 1925…

Eighteen technicians were sent to Germany and five students were sent to France to study aircraft engineering.

August 15 1925 first aircraft factory in Turkey ... Turkish Aircraft and Engine Corporation (TOMTAŞ) went into operation. The factory established in Kayseri was one of the largest factories in the world. 120 workers were employed at the factory, including 170.

6 October 1926 Aircraft Factory was established in Eskişehir for the repair of aircraft.

While Gazi Pasha left us, Etimesgut Aircraft Factory started its operations. Now we were building domestic aircraft and domestic engines.

It's not just the state…

What happened after World War II was:

The US State Department adviser MW oil Thornburg "How Turkey rises" in the report said:

- "Turkey is no need to set up heavy industries ..."

- "How much air in Turkey, machines, engines and so on. projects and their production should be canceled immediately v ”


Some of the state factories were transferred to MKE in 1952 and some of them were converted into tractor assembly factories in 1954. Similarly
Private sector production was also destroyed.

He was even banned from selling aircraft abroad!

Turkish Aeronautical Association terminated its orders. The lands were expropriated!

Between the years 1947-1955, 1905 aircraft were purchased from the USA!

The number of 850 of the US II. It was F-84 that he used in World War II! So the US stopped all of our current manufacturing by sending us all the scrap and used weapons under the name of aid. Moreover, millions of dollars were spent from the state safe as spare parts and maintenance service.

Similarly in the field of transportation, investments in railways were halted and the road was given importance. Thus, both road vehicles, spare parts and gasoline were always imported and our money went out and became dependent on foreigners.
