SEOUL -- Korea Aerospace Industries, the sole aircraft maker in South Korea, has secured a new order worth $130 million to supply fuselage structure for G280, a twin-engine business jet built by Israel Aerospace Industries, by 2030.

Korea Aerospace Industries (KAI) said in a statement on December 15 that it would supply G280's finished fuselage structures, including seat rail, just before interior work. The aerodynamic design of G280's wing and empennage, and design of the interior were performed by Gulfstream.

In 2019, KAI signed an exclusive production contract with Israel Aerospace Industries (IAI) for G280's main wing. The construction of an independent separate plant for G280 is under way.
