Turkish aircraft for advanced training of pilots made the first flight

27
Training aircraft for advanced combat pilot training aviation Hurkus-B made its first flight. According to the Turkish company developing the aircraft, the first flight was successful. Now the aircraft will have to perform another 90 test flights, after which its delivery to the Turkish Air Force will begin.


The development of the Hurkus family of aircraft has been going on since 2006. The first flight of the training version of the aircraft - Hurkus-A - took place in August 2013. This aircraft is designed for light civil aviation, as well as for the initial training of pilots. Last year, the aircraft successfully passed certification.

Turkish aircraft for advanced training of pilots made the first flight


Hurkus-A is equipped with a PT6A-68T turboprop engine with a power of thousands of horsepower 1,6. The aircraft is capable of speeding up to 574 kilometers per hour and flying at altitudes up to 10,6 thousands of meters. The new Hurkus-B is made on the basis of a training aircraft of initial training, but received exclusively military systems, as well as a dashboard similar to jet aircraft.

Version Hurkus-B has a hundred kilograms less weight than the previous aircraft. In general, according to the company-developer, the new aircraft turned out to be more maneuverable. This version of the training aircraft will be delivered only to the troops. Details about the first flight of Hurkus-B are not disclosed.

In addition to versions A and B, the Hurkus family of aircraft will be replenished with versions C and CG. The first is an assault aircraft, which was demonstrated in February 2017. The CG version is a combat aircraft for the coast guard service.

In November last year, it became known that the company Turkish Aerospace Industries will develop a jet version of the turboprop training aircraft Hurkus. New development called Hurjet. As expected, the preliminary draft design of the aircraft will begin in the near future.

As expected, the jet Hurjet will be able to reach speeds up to 1,2 Mach numbers (about 1,5 thousands of kilometers per hour) and fly at altitudes up to 13,7 thousands of meters. According to pre-approved plans, the new aircraft will make the first flight in 2022. In service with Hurjet will have to replace outdated training aircraft T-38 Talon, reports "N + 1"

      Yes, because in the country there is one and a big Zadn ... tsa ...
      Turks, Brazilians, half of the third world have already developed their aircraft industry with might and main ...

      And we all nod to the 90s ...

      How Abkhazians become.
      We don’t want to do anything, to restore. but everything has excuses in the form of vyyna ...

      In the early 90s, nobody knew about the Turkish aviation industry at all.
      Only narrow specialists knew. that there is some Embraer there.

      For now ...
      All the way around ...

    Details of the first Hurkus-B flight were not disclosed.

    The Turkish aerospace industry (Tai) was developed by engineers who have developed and this year in the middle of the Air Force inventory it is planned to introduce the first test flight successfully completed in the HURKUS-B aircraft.
    Tai, in a statement, HURKUS-B, HURKUS-A on a much more stable and comprehensively emphasized it is produced.
    The first test successfully performs flight on an airplane, flight after engine tests, avionics, flight stability and perfection, how much test is also realized in the statement, HURKUS-B, 90 hours of flights are planned after flights of the Turkish Air Force in the inventory, it is reported to be
    Best-in-class shows how HURKUS-B cabs, including catapult seats, oxygen support, chassis, weight, strength, and like all systems in a jet cockpit, only emphasizes that it is designed

    Now the Turks are included in the category of aviation powers, and we are all waiting for the papa's gaze to come down on us! It seems that Russia is doomed to be a raw material power, well, at least it turns out that the Yak-152 is still mastery in no way!

        1. Development of a technical project - deadline 30.04.2014/XNUMX/XNUMX

        2. Development of working design documentation for the manufacture of a prototype - deadline 30.09.2014/XNUMX/XNUMX

        3. Production of prototypes: two flight, one for static and life tests, as well as a procedural simulator, a training computer class, and objective control equipment - valid until 30.10.2015/XNUMX/XNUMX

        4. Conducting preliminary tests (PI), finalizing according to their results and presenting to the GI - valid until 30.10.2015/XNUMX/XNUMX

        5. Carrying out State tests - until 30.09.2016

        6. Correction of RKD and revision based on the results of State tests with the assignment of RKD letters "O1" - deadline 25.11.2016/XNUMX/XNUMX.

        However, the program is being implemented with a delay of almost a year - the first prototype of the Yak-152 was deflated at the Irkutsk aircraft plant on August 27, 2016. Three more aircraft are under construction, two of which will undergo flight tests, the third is for static and the fourth is for ground life tests.

        Now look at the terms, you can understand that flight tests are in progress.

            Tests are not for certificates, but for testing trouble-free operation, confirming the technical data inherent in the project. Certification is a slightly different moment.

        Stop lying to both people and yourself ...
        Not produced ...
        Serial production of the Yak-152 does not exist.
        State tests of pre-production machines, each of which was done manually for 6-8 months, are not finished.
        They have a German engine.
        And everything can fly into the pipe.
        Once again.
        The plant may be ready. but there’s simply no production ...
        This is infa from mid-January 2018 from the side of the plant itself.

        So hammer your training manual of lies and lies far and for long ...

            With our needs?

            2.
            The factory in Germany is not ours, but a Russian-speaking citizen of Germany.
            Do you understand the difference? Or not really?

            3.
            This year perhaps nothing will be built.
            Because. that there is no conclusion of state tests, there is no state financing according to the results of state tests, no in terms of the budget.
            You understand. What is public procurement budgeting? Plans are written next year.

    Interestingly, how many revolutions does the screw give? In turboprops they are high-speed, which is indirectly indicated by the small diameter with five blades. But the noise is probably pretty due to the fact that the ends of the blades go to supersonic. And the fuselage is inflated under the rear pilot. If there is fuel, then the range should stretch up to 3000 km. It’s also interesting that they’re experiencing the 4th year, and still sits down without releasing flaps. But the chassis is good, it worked without "goats."

      The screw works through the gearbox, so the speed is optimal.

    VECİHİ HURKUS - who is it?

    He was born on January 6 1896 of the year in Istanbul, participated in the First World War. When injured, he returned to Istanbul. Then he entered Teilhar Mektebi in Yoshilkoye (aviation military school) and graduated as a pilot. During the First World War, which participated in the campaign against the Russians in the 7 Air Force Zone, it received pilot reports and successfully completed reconnaissance and bombardment flights, while at the same time it shot down a Russian plane. Vecihi Hürkuş is the first Turkish pilot to bring down a plane. Vecihi Hürkuş, which was later captured by the Russians, got to the island of Nargin, escaped from there (sailed for a long time). He returned home via Iran and took part in the 9 air force area, which was deployed in Yoshilkoy in the early summer of 1918.

    Vecihi Bey created the design of the fighter when he served there. But his project was not finalized due to the “Mudros Truce”. Vecihi Hürkuş, who participated in the Turkish War of Independence, also made a very successful discovery and support of flights during the War at Inonu and Sakarya, shot down a Greek plane. Vecihi Hürkuş made the first and last flights in the war of independence.

    Turkish Majlis Vecihi Bey was awarded the Independence Medal in the red stripe. He was also awarded the Order three times, but no one received him three times in the history of Turkey.

    After the war, he began to train pilots. In 1923, using the engines that the Greeks left, he began to build the first Turkish aircraft. This aircraft made its first flight in the 1925 year, it gave the aircraft its name - VECİHİ K-VI. But this time he was not awarded, on the contrary, he was punished for taking off without permission.

    Then he left the army, was engaged in civil aviation. In the 1930 year he built his second VECİHİ XIV aircraft in the timber industry. 27 September 1930 year, he flew from Kadikoye to Yeshilka, and then to Ankra. I applied for certification on the suitability of the aircraft (technical competence of the aircraft) - I was refused by letter "because there is no personnel in our personnel who would evaluate the technical details of your aircraft, therefore, we will not be able to certify your aircraft ...".

    He did not stop, received permission that in parts he was allowed to take this plane to Czechoslovakia. In the 1931 year, he assembled the plane there, received a certificate and returned to Turkey on the same plane.

    A year later, he opened the first civil aviation school. He trained 12 pilots. Until the 1937 year, he built various aircraft: For the training of pilots VECİHİ XV; Sea plane - VECİHİ SK-X (engine - 160 losh.sil. Mercedes.); on the order of one well-known businessman, he built an airplane with a VECİHİ XVI cockpit.

    Then he went to Germany to get an engineering degree. After 2, he returned with a diploma. But state agencies said that in two years it is not possible to obtain an engineering diploma.

    He continued to work as before, but other times began - war, the post-war period, the Americans ... he was not given a chance to work, His firms were sunburned, several accidents, sabotages, threats ... He was poor, he lived in poverty for his last years .

    Hurkus training aircraft

    Only we are not English speakers. It seems to me that it would be more correct to use Russian spelling in accordance with the Turkish language: "Hurkush".
