Indigenous Ejection Seat for Turkey's TF-X Fighter

Indigenous Ejection Seat for Turkey's TF-X Fighter

Turkey will produce its own ejection seat for the indigenous fighter aircraft (TF-X). Abdurrahman Şeref Can, Head of the fixed-wing platforms Department from the Presidency of Defence Industries, announced the project. Mr. Can informed that the contract was signed with the manufacturing company for the ejection seat suitable for the Turkish body structure in the TF-X project.

Two Wind tunnels for Aviation

He stated that the construction of two wind tunnels for the aircraft has also started. Closed-circuit subsonic wind tunnel construction started within the facilities of Turkish Aerospace (TUSAŞ). We expect it to come into effect in 2022. We are building an open-loop trisonic wind tunnel that can reach four Mach at Tubitak-Sage.

A Trisonic Wind Tunnel (TWT) is a wind tunnel named because it can test in three-speed regimes – subsonic, transonic, and supersonic.
