TAI to Extend Life of TurAF F-16s

SLE on 35 Turkish Air Force Block 30s

Turkish Aerospace Industries (TAI) are about to embark on a F-16 service life extension (SLE) for all 35 Turkish Air Force Block 30s. 

TAI are the prime contractors and Lockheed Martin is the sub-contractor which will provide the engineering kits. Work on the first two aircraft, a single-seat F-16C and dual seat F-16D, will commence this November at the TAI Ankara facility. 

With flight testing the work should take about a year and once proved, will see the SLE commence on the remaining 33 jets. 

TAI will complete work on the first 25 aircraft before the work is transferred to the 1st Air Maintenance Support Centre (AMSC) at Eskisehir.
