HAVELSAN and IFTC sign A320 flight simulator contract

HAVELSAN has signed a contract with International Flight Training Center (IFTC) for an Airbus A320 NEO/CEO Full Flight Simulator (FFS) with three engine options.


IFTC, a member of Gözen Holding, is Türkiye’s first independent simulator training centre. It has provided its customers a training environment with two training centres on different continents (one in Istanbul and one in Antalya).

Both centres operate five FFS covering Airbus A320 and Boeing B737NG aircraft types. IFTC is internationally recognised for its support to a wide range of airlines and ATOs, fulfilling their pilot training requirements with precision and excellence.

The HAVELSAN device is being installed at the beginning of the summer season in 2024 and will be the first Turkish-manufactured FFS in IFTC, marking a significant milestone for Türkiye, IFTC, and HAVELSAN.


“This collaboration marks a significant milestone in our commitment to delivering cutting-edge training solutions to the aviation industry. Together, we aim to elevate the training experience for pilots and contribute to the advancement of aviation excellence worldwide,” said Mehmet Akif Nacar, CEO of HAVELSAN.

"This strategic decision not only reflects our dedication to elevating standards for both domestic and international customers, but also signifies our confidence in HAVELSAN's emergence as a key player in the global aviation industry,” added Cengiz Arbaç, general manager of IFTC.
