VL Paarma (English: Gadfly) was a Finnish biplane, two-seated trainer aircraft, designed by the State Aircraft Factory (Valtion Lentokonetehdas) for use with the Finnish Air Force. A prototype was constructed in 1930–31 and made its maiden flight on March 20, 1931. The aircraft was, however, underpowered, and the flight characteristics were poor. Suggestions for improvements were made and the engine was replaced by a higher-powered one. The aircraft was damaged in 1933 and was never repaired.
