The development of the CAIGA Primus 150 aircraft began in 2009, however, American aircraft manufacturers were able to develop only the design of the aircraft, after which, due to the bankruptcy of the company, the project was officially closed, and resumed by the Chinese aircraft corporation only in 2011, where it was still being finalized. for a year and a half.

During its design, the aircraft underwent a number of changes - according to the plan of American aircraft manufacturers, the aircraft was supposed to accommodate up to 7 people on board, in particular, two crew members and five passengers, however, ultimately, the aircraft was modified by Chinese engineers and became only a five-seat aircraft designed to carry three passengers. Nevertheless, this fact practically did not affect the popularity of the aircraft, which, to a greater extent, began to be used as a small and inexpensive administrative aircraft, and rather only in a number of exceptions as a private turboprop aircraft. The CAIGA Primus 150 aircraft is not suitable for the transportation of goods, in particular, this is due to the design features of the aircraft, and the lack of the possibility of simple 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.
