Turkish Aerospace Industry (TAI) continues to create domestic and national gains for Turkey within the framework of the National Technology Move. TAI will hold another first in the world in the Full Scale Static Test (FSST), which enables original products to test critical parts before performing flight activities. TAI will have realized a first for Turkey besides the biggest test in TAI history with T625 GÖKBEY, which is subjected to full static test.
The full-length static test of T625 GÖKBEY, where the entire helicopter fuselage will be loaded and critical parts will be tested, will be carried out with 96 control channels, while the helicopter body will be loaded at 96 different points and directions. Sensor data will be collected from approximately 32 thousand channels in full-length static tests involving 2 different test scenarios. Collected data will be analyzed by extracting structural strain maps on the body. At the end of the tests, the structural strength limits of the helicopter fuselage will be revealed and the safe flight and certification processes will be initiated.
The tests to be carried out within the scope of the GÖKBEY project started with 2014 engineers in 4, while in 2021 it increased 8 times and reached 32 engineers and technicians. The facility is equipped with world-class equipment and infrastructure, has a closed area of 3200 square meters and can perform 60 different tests at 60 different stations at the same time when operating at full capacity.
T625 GÖKBEY General Purpose Helicopter
Within the scope of GÖKBEY General Purpose Helicopter Program, cockpit equipment, automatic flight control computer, condition monitoring computer, mission and flight management software for nationally developed military and civilian light class prototype helicopters have been developed by ASELSAN in accordance with civilian certification and are integrated into helicopters. In this context, equipment deliveries for civilian helicopters have been completed. Certification flights of GÖKBEY civil configuration helicopter continue. It can be used in many missions such as Helicopter, VIP, Cargo, Air Ambulance, Search and Rescue, Offshore Transport.
