A new milestone for the Turkish aviation industry!
TOMTAŞ Aircraft Factory actually represents an unfinished story for the Turkish aviation industry. TOMTAŞ, which started its activities in 1920, when the dates showed 1925, the Turkish Aircraft Society stated that an aircraft factory should be established in Turkey. Later, he started working and Kayseri Aircraft Factory was established. 100 different aircraft were manufactured at the factory.
In the first place, the factory established a partnership with the German company Junkers, considering the rapid elimination of capital and technical personnel needs. In the following processes, when the date showed the year 1928, the partnership broke down and the factory stopped production. Junkers shares were also wasted. The shares were transferred to the Turkish Aircraft Society and the factory started operating again in 1931 under the name of TOMTAŞ. With the changes made later, the factory turned into today’s Kayseri Air Supply and Maintenance Center Command.
A new factory with 4 different companies and an investment of 205 million TL!
