The Ilyushin Il-103 is a single-engine, low-wing training aircraft developed by the Ilyushin Design Bureau starting in 1990 in the Soviet Union. The aircraft is now produced in Russia.[1] It was the first Russian aircraft to achieve Federal Aviation Administration certification, in 1998, for sales in the United States.[2]

Produced by RSK-MiG, it has been adopted by the Republic of Korea Air Force as a primary trainer, where it is known as the T-103.

Operational history[edit]

Reviewers Dave Unwin and Marino Boric described the design in a 2015 review as "very robust, safe and comfortable. It was designed for everyday operation on poor runways and with the ability to cope with every variation of the harsh Russian climate."[2]
