Then kind give the link where military has requested a aircraft? Or even has any naval chief states where and when they required one
um... I think the wish for AC goes back to the late 90's when TSK we're making plans for the TN acquisition of corvettes and frigates, as you know it turned into "building our own" corvettes and frigates, and the coming TF2000 destroyer.

AC is a long term investment. Turkey's interests in the region are expanding and in the next ten years, Turkey's overseas assets will only increase. If we start this project now, by the time it's finished, there will be a big need for a carrier strike group.

Considering Kızıl Elma dry dock has started construction years ago, we might assume that the future need for an AC was realized years ago and they started building the infrastructure accordingly. Such a strategic program may not have public information available until the project is matured enough.

Too many personal options

Some credible sources please
That's what RTE told us in the last meeting:

'At this moment we have an aircraft carrier, even if it is not a complete one, but halfway. Now we will complete it. Hopefully, we will also have an aircraft carrier. Now we start with this one, we already launched it to the sea. Now we will try to buy one or two more.'

Many analysts refer to this sentence of RTE, that a full AC will probably be sought...

Küresel savasci former naval officer evaluated the same speech and said RTE is aware of difference between LHD and AC. As such he’s convinced that it’s a real AC being talked about.

"Turkey's first aircraft carrier in 2019. Founded in Çanakkale's Biga began to do in the Red Apple Building Pool.

National facilities made with the ship, which would place Turkey among the few countries with aircraft carriers. Turkey has also reportedly received orders from abroad. "

Interesting

Not interesting, most of floating drydocks are capable of handling AC sized ships. Check the size of floating or conventional dry docks in Tuzla region, and you will see why it is not interesting.
Having the dry dock does not mean you can build the AC , that shipyard is incapable of building a single service class logistic ships.

not so optimistic gardas - irony off ...

On that topic you shouldn't be optimistic but realistic.
And besides all the ongoing projects that journey will cost the state easily over $10 billions and a lot of time.

It's cheaper and way easier to get aircrafts for TCG Anadolu then building a AC from scratch.
