Turkish Regional Jet Programme Soaring to New Heights

Issue 64

Mr. Fatih Ozmen, CEO of Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC), a United States-based aerospace and aviation systems company, described a new future for U.S.-Turkish business relations as he shared details about collaboration on the Turkish Regional Aircraft Project. TRJet, a wholly owned subsidiary of SNC, will produce Turkey’s first regional passenger aircraft. Ozmen delivered the keynote address at the 2015 American Turkish Council (ATC) Conference Tues., Sept. 29, at the Ritz-Carlton in Washington D.C. 

“We expect this aircraft will help change the face of transportation in Turkey,” said Ozmen. “At its core, TRJet is about the transfer of skills, expertise and education. It offers a solid foundation for technology and innovation, one that the people of Turkey can build on and then reap the benefits for generations to come.” With final approvals for the historic project in progress, the next step is to start construction on the TRJet facility in Ankara.
