Project Kowsar 88.

21.3k Moonraker  1.3 years ago


Like the nations of Brazil, India and Turkey, Iran seeks to become more militarily independent through local industry. This thinking has given rise to a new indigenous product advanced jet trainer known as "Kowsar-88" being developed by Iran Aviation Industries Organization (IAIO). The aircraft was unveiled in April 2017 and is planned for a first-flight sometime in late-2017 or early-2018 (the latter more likely). A scheduled five-year test program sets service entry for the early 2020s.

Externally, the aircraft is highly conventional as advanced jet trainers go. It seats its crew of two, in tandem, under a long-running, largely unobstructed canopy (hinged along starboard side) aft of a short nosecone (housing one of two embedded avionics suites).
