Assembling aircraft in China


The Chinese aircraft plant assembled the fuselage of the first light-engine aircraft Pilatus PC-6

The joint Swiss-Chinese enterprise started production of Pilatus PC-6 aircraft.

At present, the fuselage of the first Pilatus PC-6 manufactured here is assembled at the Chinese aircraft plant. In addition, the joint venture will also produce light-engine aircraft wings, and the remaining parts for the final assembly of light-engine aircraft will be delivered directly from other aircraft manufacturing enterprises.

It is assumed that the cost of the Pilatus PC-6 and Pilatus PC-12, Which will be produced here, will be 20-25% lower than usual, which is likely to be of interest to local airlines specializing in low-flying flights, and, among other things, the export of aircraft to neighboring countries, including Russia, is also expected.
