I think that those are used to train future pilots who will fly to Turkish Airlines, when a candidate successfully passes all the entrance tests that's the aircraft on which he or she starts pilot training. It must be that Turkish Airlines has its own flight academy at Ataturk Airport in Istanbul.

KL and LH also have flight school props painted in mainline livery. Here are pics of them here in GRQ:

Yes, they have a new own flight school as many airlines have. It was opened earlier this year or last year IIRC.

Quoting Stylo777 (Thread starter):

As has been said here already, these aircraft are for starting pilot training at TK.
