Turkish Aerospace nationalized C130 aircraft with Erciyes Project

Turkish Aerospace continues to provide world-class services in all areas of the aviation ecosystem.

Within the scope of the Erciyes Modernization project, the modernization activities of a total of 23 systems and 117 components continue to be carried out with the central control computer that is considered to be the brain of the aircraft and is completely developed by Turkish Aerospace engineers. Turkish Aerospace, which has completed the modernization of 7 planes in the Erciyes C130 modernization project, including 19 aircraft in total, is expected to receive the 8th aircraft for modernization in the upcoming days.

Turkish Aerospace, which redesigned the central control computer of Erciyes C130 and assembled them on airplanes, also carries out the modernization of critical parts such as GPS, indicator, anti-collision system, air radar, advanced military, and civilian navigation systems, nighttime invisible lights for military missions, flight recorder, communication systems, advanced automatic flight systems (military and civilian), the ability to operate in the military network, digital moving map and ground mission planning systems. The modernization, which also facilitates the mission capabilities of C130 aircraft, reduces the pilot’s workload, as well as ensuring safe flight with automatic route tracking from take-off to landing.

With the modernization, C130 aircraft now have increased situational awareness and gained the ability to land in airports precisely and safely. The aircraft, in which the latest technology was integrated, gained execution capability as well as digital military/civil planning. Compliance with civil aviation rules has been achieved to save time and fuel. The prototype aircraft was delivered in 2014 as part of the Erciyes C 130 project signed in 2007. The project, in which a total of 12 aircraft will be modernized, is meticulously carried out by Turkish Aerospace Engineers.
