Turbomeca and Turkey sign a support contract for the Makila 1A1 engines powering the Cougar state helicopters

6th January 2009 - 09:55 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Last December, Turbomeca and the Turkish Ministry of Defense signed a contract for setting up a repair center for the Turbomeca Makila 1A1 turbo shaft engines equipping the 50 Cougar helicopters operated by the Turkish Army.

This new repair center is based at Eskişehir, in the Tusas Engine Industries, governmental repair center. It offers up to level 4 repair for the Makila 1A1 engines installed on the Turkish Cougar helicopters acquired in the 1990’s.

With this contract, the Turkish defense sees the proximity of the Turbomeca engine support significantly reinforced, thus increasing its autonomy.

In addition, the Turkish Turbomeca customers benefit today from the proximity of a field representative, based in Ankara.

The Turbomeca fleet in Turkey is mainly linked to the current military market, for which this new support contract represents a new step.
