Hongdu Aviation Industry Group (HAIG) JL-8 / K-8




The JL-8 uses the WS-11, a Chinese copy of the Ukranian AI-25TL engine. The JL-8 avionics are inferior to the export K-8 version, which is equipped with advanced Western avionics and multi-function display systems.

Nanchang partnered Pakistan Aeronautical Complex in development of the K-8 Karakorum jet trainer (first flown November 1990). The JL-8 became the standard trainer of the PLAAF.
