History

China and Pakistan agreed to jointly develop the K-8 Karakorum jet trainer, which was planned to incorporate significant American content, including Garrett engines, and Collins and Magnavox avionics. The develpment of this project was jeopardized US restrictions levied by the United States following the June 1989 Tienanmen Square massacre. Manufacture of four prototypes started January 1989, and the first flight test was conducted on 21 November 1990. A total of 12 aircraft (six each to China and Pakistan) were delivered by end of 1996. Pakistan decided against domestic series production in 1994. While the original plan involved up to 75 aircraft for Pakistan, by early 1996 as many as 100 were reportedly desired to replace aging Cessna T-37 trainers. The Chinese requirement may range up to several hundred, which would be powered by the Progress AI-25 turbofans imported from Russia beginning in 1997.
