The first prototype of Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA (Attack Unmanned Aerial Vehicle), called PT-1, developed by the BAYKAR company, reached an altitude of 30 thousand feet. UAV has thus successfully completed the High Altitude System Identification Test. With this altitude, Akıncı İHA has reached the usual cruising altitude of passenger aircraft.
Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA PT-1 took off at 06.16 as part of the High Altitude System Identification Test after the preparations that started at night. The flight, which exceeded the targeted altitude of 30 thousand feet (approximately 9.15 km), took 3 hours and 22 minutes. Bayraktar Akıncı TİHA successfully landed at 09.38 after the tests. Bayraktar AKINCI TİHA thus achieved its fifth successful flight in the tests that continued with two prototypes.
