 A41-VNS-41-01
 
The VNS-41 is the first amphibious microlight aircraft made in Vietnam. The A41 Factory (officially Aircraft Repair Company A-41) under the Air Force and Air Defense Department (Ministry of Defense) manufactured the aircraft based on the Russian Che-22 Korvet design by Boris Chernov and E.Yungerov. A Che-22 was acquired by Vietnam in the late 1990s from the Philippines.
 
Technicians began developing the VNS-41 in June 2003. Its entire hull, tail and middle wing are made of high-quality composite materials. The proportion of locally-made parts in the hydroplanes is 70 percent.
