Defence Turkey : BAE Systems has a big presence at ILA Berlin with the RAF’s Hawk T2 advanced jet trainer and its Pilots. Could you please inform us about the show and your activities?

Mr. Steve Harris – Business Development Executive, Turkey : BAE Systems is proud to be a part of the ILA Berlin Air Show and especially so this year given the very clear links and emphasis on the Turkish Aviation Industry.  Turkey is a country that we are closely aligned with and we have a keen interest in the air-sector opportunities.  We had a significant outdoor display this year including our trailer-mounted displays demonstrating the benefits of the Hawk Synthetic Training Systems and Mission Data Replay; plus some systems that underpin our continual drive for improvement. These include integrating the Link 16 system, and two optical devices for pilot use; Striker, a Fast-Jet or Rotary Visor Projected Helmet Mounted Display and our Q-Sight monocular helmet mounted display.
