Beijing General Aviation to manufacture P-750 aircraft in Changzhou High-Tech Zone

Beijing General Aviation Co. Ltd., (BGAC) officially started the construction of the aircraft production facility for Beijing Navigation Changzhou Aircraft Industry Co., Ltd. (BNCAG) in Changzhou National High-Tech Industrial Development Zone's Aviation Industrial Park on October 28, 2015. Once the new facility starts operation, it is scheduled to produce 70 P750 planes annually and serve as BGAC's manufacturing and maintenance hub in east China. 

Changzhou High-Tech Zone, located in China's highly dynamic Yangtze River Delta area, continues enhancing its infrastructure-related offerings. In May of this year, the aviation park received the approval to establish a block of general aviation controlled airspace, with a flight zone encompassing a maximum of 1,720 square kilometers and an allowed flight height of up to 3,000 meters. The airspace will be used by the park's resident companies for flights of their general aircraft and provides aerospace manufacturers with a convenient location for test flights and certifications.

To address the fast-growing general aviation market in China, BNCAG will be primarily engaged in the manufacturing and certification of fixed-wing P750 aircraft. The firm will establish the P750 aircraft service and support center for east China in stages, and will manage the company's activities across the general aviation industry chain, including showcasing and sales, test flight and delivery, supply of peripheral aviation equipment as well as modification and maintenance of P750 aircraft. The 46,320-square-meter facility is located just south of the Shanghai-Chengdu High-speed Railway and north of Changzhou Airport's runways. The facility will boast specialized facilities used for aircraft assembly and spray painting of the fully assembled aircraft. Once the facility is put into operation, plans call for the production of 70 P750 aircraft annually. 

The P750 is a multipurpose and fixed-wing aircraft with a single turboprop engine and offers short-distance take-off and landing, reverse propeller-enabled ability to back up while on the ground, flexibility and motility in the air as well as superior load capacity, in addition to other features. The aircraft has received air worthiness certificates for operation in over 20 countries and regions, including the U.S. and Europe. The P750 is widely used for passenger and cargo transport, tourism, sky diving, aerial photography and surveying as well as for remote sensing.
