EASA Awards TAI with Design Organization Certificate
Being Turkey's center of technology in design, development, modernization, manufacturing, integration and life cycle support of integrated aerospace systems, from fixed and rotary wing air platforms to unmanned aerial vehicle and space systems, Turkish Aerospace Industries, Inc. (TAI), was awarded by EASA with the "Design Organization Certificate" for her Trainer Aircraft "HÜRKUŞ."
TAI applied EASA in 2007 for Design Organization Certification, which certifies that the aircraft design process was performed within the approved regulations and standards.
Since then, TAI has successfully passed all the audits that were performed by the specialists of the European and Turkish Authorities, EASA and SHGM, and was awarded with the privilege to design an aircraft complying with international safety regulations. This authorization is the first of its kind that has been awarded to Turkey.
The Certificate confirms that TAI complies with the international standards starting from concept phase to the flight tests till the type certification.
All approved regulations and standards will form the basis for TAI's future development programs such as Regional Jet or Fighter Jets.
