11 June 2022

Another important step was achieved by moving the first front fuselage from the production line to the final assembly line in the HÜRJET Project , Turkey's first jet-powered trainer, originally designed and developed by Turkish Aerospace Industries ( TUSAS ).

According to the statement made by TAI, another stage has been implemented in the HÜRJET Jet Trainer Project, which the company started with its own resources in 2017.

In this context, the first front fuselage production of the aircraft was completed and moved to the final assembly line.

350 parts were brought together for the front body, where all electronic areas of HURJET, which will consist of approximately 8 thousand parts in total, will be managed. On the front fuselage, which is made of aluminum and composite parts, there are the aircraft's mission computer, areas where moving surfaces will be controlled, avionic systems and electronic components that will guide the aircraft.

TUSAŞ General Manager Temel Kotil, whose views are included in the statement, stated that he is excited to carry the first component of the country's first jet engine trainer HÜRJET to the final assembly line and said, "We will launch our HURJET Project, which is equipped with new generation technologies that will contribute to our country's jet pilot training, on March 18, 2023. As the first century of our Republic is celebrated in 2023, our country's vision projects HÜRJET and ATAK-2 will make us proud with their first flights. I would like to thank my colleagues.We develop projects in all fields of aviation,I would like to express my gratitude to our state and nation for their unwavering support," he said.

What are the features of HURJET?

The single-engine and tandem cockpit HÜRJET Jet Trainer Aircraft, which was decided to be mass produced by the Defense Industry Executive Committee convened on January 12, 2022, is designed to play a critical role in modern warplane training with its superior performance features. HÜRJET, which can perform roles such as combat readiness transition training, air patrol (armed and unarmed) and acrobatic demonstration aircraft, has the limits of "1.4 mach speed +8-3g". HÜRJET will be able to serve up to an altitude of 45 thousand feet and carry a useful load of close to 3 tons in its hull. With its advanced human-machine interface, digitally controlled flight system, internal tactical training and virtual training systems, HURJET will offer a new generation aircraft flight experience.
