The IRGC Fajr (فجر - "Dawn") was a light aircraft flown in Iran in 1988, intended for general military use including training, liaison, and reconnaissance. Of all-composite construction, it was claimed to be the first aircraft to be designed and built in that country,[1][2] although it was speculated in the West that it may have been merely a Lancair homebuilt design constructed there.[3]
