Hopefully new airliner contracts come up soon after a nuclear deal and inn the coming years the markets are open to really drive other indigenous design with technical experience from other countries.
    The main hurdle is that offshore suppliers who are willing to break through the sanctions to sell the materials needed are those who do not have many US or European clients (thus, have no need to build high quality). Manufacturers who build mostly for Ukrainian or Chinese clients build to lower quality standard than those who sell to the entire western/non-western market who comply to generally higher international standards for certified civilian aircraft.

    The story would probably be different in the generation that western aviation market becomes a less dominant one than the one in the present. Although by that time Iran won't even be at animosity with most of the largest global economies anymore.

    This is why they began development on the IR-150, hopefully it will replace all the old airliners currently in service:

    I should have clarified, the Pica-1 and 2 are made by a civilian company. They are primarily designed as private planes but can be applied to security purposes.
