Head of Defense Industry Prof. Dr. In his speech here, İsmail Demir said that new centers and facilities will be opened that will make significant contributions to the National Technology Move initiated by President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
Stating that the Turkish defense industry has achieved success in many areas, President Demir stated that Turkey should go a long way in its goal of becoming a global power and achieve great successes.
Head of Defense Industry Prof. Dr. Emphasizing that when he graduated from the aircraft engineering department 40 years ago, it was difficult to find a job, İsmail Demir said:
“Over the years, many aeronautical engineers had to go abroad, do other education and engineering in other subjects. What was the reason for this? It was not a will, a vision, a project. In fact, when the F-16 assemblies were finished, there were discussions about what we would do with this TAI. But today we see this thankfully. Our aircraft engineers do not have a problem finding a job. Many of our engineers do not have a problem finding a job.”
President Demir said that from the days when it was said that we should work even though it was an aircraft design project years ago, there were many fields to work as an aircraft engineer and said to the engineers, “If something is man-made, we will do better. Let's believe in this. Thankfully, we see this will and determination in our youth.” He said they gave the message.
Expressing that the facilities to be opened are the seeds for the future, President Demir said, “The wind tunnels to be built here will be one of the most important elements in Turkey's future space and aviation projects.” used the expressions.
