Turkish defense contractor Havelsan to export its F-16 maintenance simulator

Turkish defense contractor Havelsan’s engineers, along with Air Force Command aircraft maintenance technicians, developed a simulation system for the maintenance of F-16 fighter jets, which the company now eyes exporting abroad through F-16 aircraft manufacturing company.

The F-16 Virtual Maintenance Training Simulator is set to raise the training level of maintenance personnel that work on the fighter jets, which comprise Turkey’s most significant striking power, for now.

Havelsan Jet Aircraft Systems Program Manager Koray Uyar told Anadolu Agency (AA) Friday that with the F-16 Simulator Procurement Project, they undertook a great responsibility to support F-16 jets with simulators.

He said that while simulators have always been developed for pilots, the maintenance concept is almost as important as pilot simulation.

The system is scheduled to be delivered to Air Force Command by the end of this year, while Uyar said they “are planning to not only deliver this simulator to the air force but also to sell it to many F-16 users around the world.”

It was developed entirely by domestic means under Havelsan’s deputy general manager of simulation, autonomous and platform management technologies.
