Why has president Erdogan suddenly decided to mend relations with Israel?

What kind of advantage is he looking for?

Is he looking for a favor from the USA or assistance from Israel's defense industry?

N.B. I am talking about post-Navi Marmara relations.

Your questions is off. Turkey and Israel have enjoyed great relations from day one. It is only recently that this has changed at all.

Israeli–Turkish relations are the bilateral ties between the Israel and the Republic of Turkey. Israel–Turkey relations were formalized in March 1949,[1] when Turkey was the first Muslim majority country to recognize the State of Israel.[2][3] Both countries gave high priority to military, strategic, and diplomatic cooperation, while sharing concerns with respect to the regional instabilities in the Middle East.[4][5] However, relations between the two countries have increasingly deteriorated in recent decades.
