New capabilities that will contribute to the development of a fully independent defense industry ecosystem continue to be acquired in aerospace and defense projects carried out under the leadership of the Presidency of the Republic of Turkey Defense Industry Presidency. In this context, Turkish Aerospace Industries established a test facility designed entirely with domestic and national resources to perform the tests of HÜRJET's fuel systems. Thus, the fuel system of Turkey's first jet trainer HÜRJET will be safely flown and tested on the ground before the first flight. In tests to be carried out with HURJET's one-to-one fuel tanks and fuel system; Fuel transfer, filling/discharging, engine feeding and ventilation systems and sealing processes in the aircraft will be tested at this facility.
With the experience gained from this facility, which will remain operational for the life of HÜRJET, work has also begun to establish a new facility where the fuel systems of the National Combat Aircraft will also be tested. As a result of the test data to be obtained from these facilities, the company will also contribute to the design improvements of the platforms. With the facility, which will provide advantages in terms of time and finance, Turkish Aerospace Industries, which gave the company the ability to test aircraft fuel systems, has also developed one of the world's leading facilities in its field with domestic and national resources. Along with the test data to be obtained here, it will be ensured that the aircraft design data remain in our country.
Turkish Aerospace Industries has accelerated its work for the HÜRJET Jet Trainer, which it will meet with the sky on March 50, 18, on its 2023th anniversary. In the HÜRJET project, where the body assembly continues, the company established the Iron Bird Test Facility, where tests of moving surfaces will be carried out, and the HÜRJET 270 Engineering Simulator, and in this context, the company has brought in a new facility where the fuel systems of HÜRJET will be tested.
Making a statement about the facility where the fuel systems will be tested, Turkish Aerospace Industry General Manager Prof. Dr. Temel Kotil said, “While we provide the platforms that our country needs in the field of aviation, we also continue our investments to develop and expand test capabilities. With our newly commissioned HÜRJET Fuel Systems Test Facility, we have gained the first facility in our country and one of the few facilities in the world in this field. As a result of the experiences to be gained from here, we started to work to gain a similar facility for the National Combat Aircraft. I would like to thank my colleagues for their hard work.”
