Turkish Aerospace Industries’ (TAI’s) HÜRKUŞ-B aircraft has performed its first flight test in Ankara, Turkey.

The basic trainer aircraft is being developed for the Turkish armed forces. TAI is under contract to deliver 15 aircraft with entry into service slated for mid-2018.

HÜRKUŞ-B will undergo around 90 flight hours of training to test engine, avionics, stability and flight test execution.

Temel Kotil, president and CEO, TAI, said: ‘HÜRKUŞ-B is 100kg lighter, faster, more modern and stronger than HÜRKUŞ-A. This version has a more stable and comprehensive design.’
