Once again, to launch
an aircraft, as in to take an aircraft that is ready to go, and sitting on the ramp prepared to fly a mission that it's
scheduled for, you need to do the walkaround, systems checks, engine start, navigation alignment, and if everything is good, taxi and launch. You
don't need a full avionics crew, or any other techs for that.
I'm only talking about the actual launch process of aircraft that are ready. Nothing whatsoever to do with broken aircraft, or anything else. Why is
that so hard to understand? Either you're deliberately misunderstanding, don't care to understand, or are just arguing to argue.
Turkey has full maintenance crews that do all the checks, all the maintenance, and everything else the aircraft requires, as they are required. You
don't need them to go out on the ramp and launch the aircraft though, unless it breaks at some point during the preflight process.
