The Dorna was developed along the lines of a two-seat, jet-powered advanced trainer for the Islamic Republic of Iran Air Force (IRIAF). It has been given a rather conventional form including split air intakes (along the fuselage sides), a swept-back wing mainplane, and tandem-seat cockpit overlooking the sloped nosecone. A single vertical fin is seated at the tail and horizontal planes are seen near its base. The undercarriage is retractable and consists of three single-wheeled legs.
