Turkey to provide regional CN235 support

15th July 2016 - 12:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Turkey’s CN235 fleet will be supported in-country following the authorization of the Turkish Air Force’s 2nd Air Supply and Maintenance Centre (2nd ASMC) in Kayseri as a regional support and maintenance centre for the type, Airbus Defence and Space announced on 13 July.

The centre has undergone a detailed certification process over the last year in order to achieve certification. A CN235 aircraft will be brought to Kayseri from an allied country to perform tests and begin the implementation process in October. 

Turkey has 59 CN235 aircraft, operated by the Turkish Air Force, Coast Guard and Navy. 

Stephan Miegel, head of transport aircraft services, Airbus Defence and Space, said: ‘Turkey’s enormous experience with the operation and support of the CN235 will enable it to play a valuable role in the CN235 global support network. We congratulate the Turkish Air Force on achieving the required certification and look forward to examining future possibilities for it in supporting the C295 and A400M aircraft as well.’
