AMF was established in 1975 to undertake manufacturing of a primary flying trainer aircraft under license from SAAB SCANIA of Sweden. The aircraft was named Mushshak, (meaning proficient) and was produced from the kits provided by SAAB. After successfully producing 92 Mushshak aircraft, AMF acquired the status of Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) in 1981.
Within 30 years of its establishment, AMF has produced more than 300 Mushshak aircraft which are successfully flying not only in Pakistan but also in foreign countries such as Saudi Arabia, Oman, and South Africa. The Mushshak not only meets the requisites of international aviation standards but also conforms to Pakistan and South African civil aviation standards and that is why it is the front line aviation product of Pakistan. During the course of manufacturing, AMF, in order to improve the design and performance produced an upgraded version of aircraft in shape of Super Mushshak.
