Universal Avionics' equipment selected for important milestone in Turkish aviation history

Universal Avionics' EFI-890R Flat Panel Display and Radio Control Unit (RCU) have been selected for the Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) Hürkus project. A primary and basic trainer aircraft designed and manufactured by TAI, the TAI Hürkus is a tandem two seat, low wing and single engine turboprop aircraft. The TAI Hürkus is primarily being built to meet the requirements of the Turkish Air Force Command (TAF). Universal Avionics will deliver two RCU units and two EFI-890R Flat Panel Displays to be used as Primary Flight Displays (PFD) in each cockpit.

"Universal Avionics congratulates TAI for their rollout of the Hürkus trainer aircraft, as a milestone in the Turkish aviation history as the first developed airframe in Turkey," said Christian Zumkeller, Regional Sales Manager of Southern Europe for Universal Avionics. "Universal is proud to be a part of this important program as we continue to build a reputation for innovation and safety-critical performance in harsh conditions," he added. Furthermore, "this program continues the momentum of the EFI-890R Flat Panel Display as chosen for standard production from an aircraft OEM."

The aircraft will be used to execute basic pilot training, instrument flying, navigation training, and weapons and formation training missions. It will also be exported as a civilian and military flight trainer aircraft. The airframe will be built to meet the EASA CS 23 standards.
