T129 ATAK Poland Roadshow

Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) is launching its “T129 ATAK Poland Roadshow” 22 August  – 4 September 2015. The T129 ATAK Advanced Attack and Tactical Reconnaissance Helicopter is a candidate for the KRUK Programme of the Polish Armed Forces. During its visit to Poland, the T129 ATAK will perform demonstration flights for the Polish defence industry and aviation lovers, aka AV-Geeks.

The T129 ATAK Helicopter will make its first ever public appearance in Poland during Radom Airshow 22-23 August 2015. Visitors will have the chance to witness the T129 ATAK’s performance and maneuverability during demonstration flights at 15:20h on both days.  More information about the T129 ATAK will be available on TAI’s stand at the show.

The T129 ATAK helicopter will be presented to Polish and Turkish high officials, industrial partners, and the media at a private event with a flight demonstration at Warsaw-Babice Airport on 28 August 2015 and it will appear again on static display at the TAI stand at MSPO Kielce, 1-4 September 2015.

The T129 ATAK Advanced Attack and Tactical Reconnaissance Helicopter is a new generation, tandem, two-seat, twin engine helicopter, specifically designed for attack and reconnaissance purposes. It incorporates a totally new system philosophy, with new engines (LHTEC CTS 800-4A), new avionics, visionics and weapon systems, a modified airframe, upgraded drive train, and new tail rotor. T129 ATAK has been optimised to meet and exceed the performance requirements of the most challenging geographical and environmental conditions. (Photo: TAI)

The first batch of T129 ATAK Helicopters has already been delivered to the Turkish Armed Forces and is in service supporting the missions of the Turkish Army. As an integral member of the NATO alliance, the Turkish Armed Forces have always been at the leading edge of innovative defense technology. With the strong endorsement of the Turkish Armed Forces, the already significant international interest on the T129 ATAK as a superior alternative attack helicopter is expected to intensify.

Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) is a global center of technology in design, development, modernisation, manufacturing, integration, and life cycle support for integrated aerospace systems, from fixed and rotary wing air platforms to unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) systems (UAS) and space systems.
