Korea Aerospace Industries KC-100 Naraon / KT-100
 
 KAI-KC100-01
 
The KAI KC-100 Naraon is a four-seat, low-wing, single-engine light aircraft under development by Korea Aerospace Industries. Development began in June 2008 with a five-year development timeframe.
 
The KC-100 is built from carbon fibre and features gull-wing doors. The wing employs a laminar flow airfoil and winglets. The engine is a Continental TSIOF-550-K turbocharged 315 hp (235 kW) powerplant controlled by FADEC. A full-plane parachute system will be optional.
 
First flying on 20 July 2011, the name Naraon was chosen based on public input.
 
The company expected that deliveries would commence in mid-2013 at a forecast price of US$575,000.
 
In May 2014, the South Korean Air Force academy entered a memorandum of understanding to obtain a military trainer variant designated the KT-100, the first mass production contract for the aircraft. The KT-100 was to replace the 20 Ilyushin Il-103 aircraft at the academy to familiarize students with flying. The KT-100 first flew on 5 October 2015 and all expected to be delivered by the end of 2016.
