Who we are
Aerotim Engineering is a technology company that specializes in rotary-wing aircraft, and offers innovative software solutions for simulators and aerial platforms.
Aerotim Engineering is an innovative technology company, dedicated to develop software for rotorcraft analysis and rotary-wing flight simulators.
In particular, Aerotim develops flight dynamic math models for EASA Level D certifiable Full Flight Simulators. This includes the development of the aerodynamic models, automatic flight control systems (AFCS), engine dynamics, related malfunctions, etc. Typically, all software is developed using flight test data and open literature information only.
Aerotim developed a unique capability to do this without the support of the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) -a difficult job for many, but a task accomplished by Aerotim repeatedly, a rare competence around the world.
While Aerotim is a software company, our core know-how and expertise are in our fundamental understanding of the physics of rotary-wing aircraft.
Our background and project experiences are in flight dynamics model development, Full-Flight Simulators for rotary-wing Platforms, embedded systems such as autopilot systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, Engine Control Units, and in the design and simulation of electric VTOL Vehicles. While our expanding project portfolio increases our experience in diverse areas and platforms, our team maintains a strong connection to the academic world, and continues to contribute through scientific publications.
Boasting more than 10 years of experience, Aerotim Engineering is able to offer a wide range of services, including project management and consultancy, subsystem software development, flight dynamics model development and fully integrated flight simulator development, all to international standards. Our flexibility in dealing with customer requests, ability to produce customized solutions, and low cost but, timely deliveries made us a sought-after company.
We are the only Turkish company among the few companies in the world that are engaged in the development of flight dynamics models for EASA Level D certifiable Full Flight Simulators. Our products are being used on various simulators in placed in European countries.
Our unique capability, that sets us apart from our competitors, is our ability to develop flight models without OEM support. We have done so several times for EASA Level D-certified simulator platforms for rotary-wing platforms. This is a rare capability around the world. In fact, as we are mostly active in Europe, our flight dynamic models are used in a number of operational Level D certified Full Flight Simulators (Airbus heli family, H145, H135, H125) in Europe.
Aerotim Engineering is gaining international attention. A significant proportion of our turnover comes from foreign sales. Since 2017, we have featured on the “Turkey’s Top 500 Service Exporters” list, prepared every year by the Turkish Exporters’ Assembly (TİM). At the Service Exporters Meeting and Award Ceremony held in December 2019, Aerotim Engineering was announced as being among the top three exporting companies in the “Engineering, Architectural, Scientific and Other Technical Services” category of the Services Exporters’ Association.
The future looks exiting for Aerotim. Stay tuned to hear about our work and projects, shaping the future in VTOL.
