November 24, 2021  By Helicopters Staff

Turkish Aerospace Industries selected International Test Pilots School, based in London, ON, to train test pilots and flight test engineers for its TF-X fighter, Hurjet advanced jet trainer and Heavy Attack helicopter projects.

Ten Graduate Course students will join the 2022A course in January in addition to Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) students already attending the 2021B course.

International Test Pilots School (ITPS) explains this contract award from TAI is one of the biggest flight test training contracts in the school’s history, beating out stiff international competition.

TAI is the latest in manufacturers selecting ITPS for fighter projects. Already at ITPS are a Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) team for the KF-21 Boromae Fighter and an Airbus Defence team for Future Combat Aircraft System.
