TAI's Chalet can also be visited at Row A 260.

T129 ATAK, Advanced Attack and Tactical Reconnaissance Helicopter, the choice of the Turkish Land Forces is a new generation, tandem two-seat, twin engine helicopter specifically designed for attack and reconnaissance purposes.

T129 ATAK has been optimized to meet and exceed the "high and hot" performance requirements for harsh geographical and environmental conditions.

The first batch of T129 ATAK was delivered to the Turkish Armed Forces which is operational regarding the mission of Turkish Army and as of today over 6000 flight hours were accumulated during the flight and firing tests, qualification and acceptance as well as training activities. As an integral part of the global security forces, Turkish Armed Forces has always been on the leading edge. As an outcome of the endorsement provided by the Turkish Armed Forces, the already strong international interest in the T129 ATAK as a superior alternative is expected to intensify.
