Turkish Aerospace Industries continues its Hurkus development studies in order to meet the basic and advanced new generation turboprop trainer aircraft needs of the Air Force Command. Hurkus, the first civilian certified aircraft of our country, issued by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), completed the "Type Certificate" studies for its military new variant, Hurkus HYEU. Thus, Hurkus achieved the success of publishing its own document for the first time, like military aviation companies.
The Hurkus project, initiated under the responsibility of the Defense Industry Executive Committee (SSIK) and the Defense Industry Presidency, continues to develop itself with the support of the Turkish Air Force Command.
While defining the "Type Certificate", which is the document that indicates the completion of all relevant activities within the scope of certification studies, a total of 1138 requirements were completed, including 540 flight hours and thousands of hours of ground and laboratory tests. For the unique military training aircraft configuration of its own design, Hurkus has completed all the necessary safety verification activities and, like similar military aviation companies, has succeeded in publishing its own document for the first time.
In this context, another important milestone was passed by completing the relevant ground and flight tests for the requirements defined in the certification rules for the new configuration dressed in the national avionic suite.
Sharing his views on the "Type Certificate" studies, Prof. Dr. Basic Cotil; "Our country now has the ability to issue its own certificate in accordance with the criteria accepted by international authorities. We are happy to be among the few countries in the world that can realise this capability. We are excited to carry out this work, which we started with Hurkus, for our other aircraft in the future. I would like to thank my colleagues for their hard work. We will continue to strengthen our national aviation industry." said.
