Abstract:
    Design and costing plan for production of a two-seater aircraft that can be manufactured completely in Pakistan, only using materials, processes and resources already available within the country.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    The Pakistani industry is essentially consumerist, and produces very little of its own. This specially holds true for the General Aviation aircraft industry, where Pakistan has a single manufacturing company, and that too just assembles component imported from abroad.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   There is a dire need in the Pakistani industry for local products. In addition, the economic impact of a blossoming aircraft industry can be immense. It could be a game changer for the industry, bringing benefits for thousands of people across various domains, including pilots and engineers.
How will the solution works
    The current project is a two-seater, single 4-cylinder engine aircraft that is targeted at the leisure pilot. This aircraft will be designed by our team in a way that it can be manufactured within Pakistan, with some off the shelf components. The aircraft will have a bubble canopy and cable-actuated flight controls.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    The main competitors of this aircraft will be the Cessna 152. Our aircraft will be considerably cheaper than the 152 while also providing locally available repair services and spare parts.
