Development of the aircraft CAIGA Primus 150 started in 2009 year, however, the American aircraft manufacturers were able to develop a design of the aircraft, and then, because of the bankruptcy of the company, the project was officially closed, and resumed Chinese Aircraft Corporation only 2011 year, where he was to finalize More over one and a half years.

In the course of its design, the aircraft underwent a number of changes - according to the intention of American aircraft builders, the aircraft was supposed to have up to 7 people on board, in particular two crew members and five passengers, but eventually the aircraft was finalized by Chinese engineers and Became only a five-seat aircraft designed to carry three passengers. Nevertheless, this fact practically did not reflect on the popularity of the aircraft, which, to a greater extent, was used as a small and inexpensive airplane of an administrative type, and rather only in a few exceptions as a private turboprop aircraft. For the transport of goods, the CAIGA Primus 150 is not adapted, in particular, due to the design features of the aircraft, and the lack of easy dismantling of passenger seats.

The main reason for the promotion of models CAIGA Primus 150 is to reduce the original price of more than 12%, which in turn has attracted customers not only in the territory of China, but foreign buyers, including from Asia, Europe and the United States.

Initially, when you create a project for the future of the aircraft, intended to equip the aircraft with two reciprocating aircraft engines, however, the Chinese aviation specialists have decided to optimize the design and replace the two engine turboprop one, able to develop more power and provide higher airspeed. Ultimately, by plane CAIGA Primus 150 was established aircraft engine General Electric H85 able to develop traction in 850 hp, which provides the ability to carry out air travel for distances up to 2600 kilometers at a maximum speed of flight in 670 km \ h.

Currently, production of aircraft CAIGA Primus 150 continues, however, the production capacity of the company «China Aviation Industry General Aircraft» is very much limited, in view of which manage to produce no more than 5-6 aircraft a year, which somewhat complicates the popularization of the aircraft.
