    Yes he applied but I think it was his eye sight which was the issue. His father was also in Air Force

    He is owner of airblue, was chairman of PIA in last PML-N govt 1997-1999.
    Hopefully PIA would take final breath in his PM ship and airblue would emerge as aviation giant, which has already started

    It all depends on funds, although PAA need 40 attack helicopters at least, also marines should get 20 attack helicopters at least to face any amphibious landing on Pakistani coast.

    Acc. to Alan Warnes, Pakistan is negotiating for 30 T129s from Turkey. As per Kokpit Aero, Pakistan asked for a $1.5 bn loan from Turkey to back the deal. During IDEAS, Turkish gov't officials said that the PAF and PN also took a look at the T129.

    If PN is also evaluating T-129 that means PN also wants to add Aviation wing for its Marine Force and SSGN

    ISTANBUL: In a rare gesture, Prime Minister Shahid Khaqan Abbasi Sunday took a test-flight of T-129, Turkish attack helicopter and appreciated it as an "impressive and good machine."

    Talking to Pakistani and Turkish media after the test-flight, the Prime Minister said Turkish Defence production industry was one of the best in the world and second to none.

    He lauded the Turkish aviation industry as well as Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan for such achievements in the defence production.

    To a question about Pakistan's plan of purchasing T-129 helicopters, Prime Minister Abbasi said, "Our army is evaluating the helicopter, and we are negotiating the contract and terms."

    Earlier, he inspected the helicopter, where he was briefed by the Turkish aviation officials about the specifications and technical parameters of the combat chopper.

    President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Turkish Aerospace Industries, Temel KOTIL told APP that T-129 was a light weight attack helicopter equipped with missiles and guns. "It is small and effective," he observed.

    He said Pakistan and Turkey have strong defence ties and was collaborating in the defence production area as well. – APP
