This is the thread about Indonesia aerospace industry. For the thread starter I am going to start from si Kumbang aircraft, the first metal aircraft designed and made by Indonesian in 1954. The aircraft is made in Indonesia Air Force research and production depot. The depot later become Indonesia first aerospace company, PT Dirgantara Indonesia (PTDI) or Indonesian Aerospace Inc. The designer is Nurtanio. He is the pioneer of Indonesia aerospace.

The LIPNUR Sikumbang (manufacturer designation X-01) was a low-wing monoplane of mixed construction built in Indonesia in 1954 as a COIN and anti-guerrilla-warfare aircraft. Of conventional configuration, it had fixed tricycle undercarriage and seated the pilot under a bubble canopy. A single example was built under the designation NU-200 in 1954, and another as the NU-225 in 1957. The latter machine was grounded in 1967.
