Akıncı, who will be exhibited in the static area and flight shows at Teknofest Azerbaijan, has crossed three countries and reached Baku.
Within the scope of the Akıncı project carried out under the leadership of the Presidency of Defense Industries, the Bayraktar Akıncı UAV, which was developed nationally and originally by Baykar, has achieved a new success. Teknofest will be exhibited in the static area in Azerbaijan and will perform flight demonstrations departing from the dynamic area.
Bayraktar Akıncı’s is in Azerbaijan for Teknofest!
The first Akinci, which took off from Çorlu on the morning of May 21, continued its flight over Georgia after crossing Turkish airspace. AKINCI, which entered the airspace of Azerbaijan after crossing Georgia, reached Baku in about 5 hours. The second Akıncı, who set off at noon, followed the same route and made a flight of about 2000 km. After successfully completing their flights, the Akıncı landed at Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport.
Thus, for the first time in our aviation history, a nationally developed UAV crossed 3 countries and covered about 2000 km. He made a long and successful flight. Bayraktar Akıncı, who recently carried out a successful firing test against the target on the sea surface with the Teber-82 Guidance Kit developed by Roketsan, is also the owner of the altitude record of our national aviation history.
Bayraktar Akıncı B UAV, which continued its test flights, broke the altitude record of our aviation history by climbing to an altitude of 40,170 feet in the test flight that took place on March 11, 2022. So far, 6 Bayraktar Akıncı UAVs have entered the inventory of the security forces.
