The Parastu (Swallow) is a reverse-engineered Beech F33 Bonanza. Iran's Defense Industries Organization announced plans in the mid-1990s for the production of the propeller-driven Parastu and jet-powered Dorna (Lark) training aircraft. The single-engine Parastu airplanes were constructed with a 1,300 km flight range and a 20 mm cannon. Limited numbers of Parastu were in operation by 1997.
