What level of interest are the engines attracting at the exhibition?

Cüneyt KENGER: We are showcasing our KTJ-3200 and KTJ-1750 engines at this exhibition. As you may know, the KTJ-3200 engine is already in serial production, while the KTJ-1750 engine, though still under development, has already undergone a successful flight, proving its capabilities swiftly. Being well-known in the industry, our engines have garnered significant interest, drawing numerous foreign companies to our booth within the exhibition's first two days. Both engines cater to specific needs in their respective fields and categories. Notably, the KTJ-1750 stands out as an exceptional engine on a global scale, meeting a specialized demand within its class concerning weight, size, and thrust. As a result, we are attracting considerable attention at the exhibition.
