Turkish Aerospace Industries (TUSAS) continues to search engine for single-engine jet training aircraft Hürjet. It was thought that TUSAS decided on this issue.
Europe's Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft is powered by the Ej200 engine manufactured by Eurojet Consortium. TUSAŞ had begun to negotiate with the consortium at Le Bourget'de Paris Aeronautical Exhibition. This development was first written by C4Defence. The F404-GE-102 engine, which is a General Electric product was thought to be out of the agenda because the agreement was near. In contrary to twin EJ200 engine used in Eurofighter, a single GE engine provides power to Korean T-50 Golden Eagle.
TUSAŞ General Manager Temel Kotil, who evaluates Hürjet's work to C4Defence, stated that no final decision was made for the engine; “The engine can be General Electric or the Eurojet EJ200” he said.
This is C4Defence’s exclusive report. It can be re-published with reference to C4Defence.
The interview with TUSAŞ General Manager Temel Kotil will be published in the 81st issue of C4Defence Magazine.
