Despite the fact that the aircraft Xian MA600 model has a great prospect and has a low cost, to date, this popularity among small turboprop aircraft. According to official data on 2014 year, aircraft manufacturer «Xi'an Aircraft Industrial Corporation» has been realized only 5 airplanes that actually provides a return on the cost of the design and development of the aircraft.
