TAAC Aerospace Technologies (TAAC), established in 2019 as a partnership between Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) and ALTINAY Defense Technologies, continues its development activities for motion control systems, landing gears, and test systems in compliance with aviation standards for critical projects such as the National Combat Aircraft and HÜRJET.
TAAC conducts research and development, design, and production activities for critical subsystems of fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. The company develops projects in the field of aviation technologies. In this context, TAAC is continuously working on the development of the flight control system, landing gear, and weapon bay door opening/closing mechanisms for the National Combat Aircraft, which will take off from hangars in 2023. Additionally, TAAC is involved in the design and installation of the Iron Bird Test System, where numerous tests and verifications for HÜRJET will be conducted within the facilities of Turkish Aerospace Industries.
TAAC aims to reduce dependence on foreign sources in the national aviation ecosystem and contributes to localization and indigenous substitution system studies with its qualified engineering staff. The company continues its projects towards the indigenous development of all motion control systems required for an aircraft and aims to accelerate efforts for the export of these critical systems in the aviation sector in the coming years.
Prof. Dr. Temel Kotil, the President of Turkish Aerospace Industries, stated, "We continue our efforts for local and national technologies in the field of aviation. TAAC Aerospace Technologies, our joint venture with Altınay Defense, is undertaking important projects to provide the country with national capabilities in critical systems needed by the sector. These systems, which will also be present on the National Combat Aircraft, which will take off from hangars in 2023, will contribute to our country's local, original, and independent aviation ecosystem. I would like to thank all our colleagues who have contributed to these projects."
Hakan Altınay, Chairman of ALTINAY Technology Group, stated, "We have been working for many years to break the dependence on foreign sources in the Defense and Aerospace sector and to strengthen our country in this field. With our joint venture TAAC Aerospace Technologies, established in partnership with TAI, we are advancing these efforts further, especially in critical aviation components. We will realize projects that have not been developed within the borders of Turkey so far, starting with our national strategic project, the National Combat Aircraft. I would like to thank all our colleagues who have worked hard for the development and strengthening of our country."
