FARNBOROUGH, England, June 10 (UPI) -- Anglo-Italian aircraft company AgustaWestland and Havelsan of Turkey have announced a joint-marketing agreement for training products.

The collaboration comes under a memorandum of understanding signed by AgustaWestland Head of Region Ross Kelly and Havelsan Chief Executive Officer Sadik Yamac.

In addition to joint marketing, the accord provides for the companies to also collaborate and enhance their businesses through the joint development of training solutions, including training systems and training centers.

"Havelsan wishes to provide simulation and synthetic training systems, including information management solutions, in support of the various rotorcraft platforms purchased by the Turkish government and international defense and government customers," Yamac said. "This MOU is an important step towards achieving our aims in the rotorcraft training systems market."

Havelsan is a supplier of simulation and synthetic training systems and information management solutions.

Neither AgustaWestland nor Havelsan provided additional details of the envisaged collaboration.

AgustaWestland in April announced it has signed a distributorship agreement with Heliconia Aero Solutions of Morocco for its aircraft.
