Ever wanted to fly in a $10 million air plane? South Korea is partnering with Peru to build 20 KT-1P airplanes for $208 million to be flown in their air force.
The cooperation is only the beginning of a bright future between the two nations, as they hope to partner for several industrial movements in the following years.
Korean Aerospace Industries assembled four of the twenty single-propeller planes constructed the other sixteen alongside Peruvian workers, with the hope that it would encourage growth in Peru’s aviation industry.
Park Geun-Hye, the current president of South Korea, is presently touring Latin America to encourage friendly relations with the region. Both she and Ollanta Humala, president of Peru, have high hopes for their new-found camaraderie.
