KT-1Ps for Peru
The Peruvian Ministry of Defence has now taken delivery of all 20 KT-1P Torito turboprop primary trainers. The final aircraft was one of 16 manufactured by SEMAN Perú, the Maintenance
Service of the FAP, in conjunction with Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI). A $209m co-production contract for 20 aircraft was signed between Peru and the Republic of Korea in November 2012, and included technology transfer, a parts manufacturing facility and a flight simulator. The first four aircraft were built at KAI facilities in South Korea, while the remaining 16 were co-produced by KAI and SEMAN.
