Start of work on the design of medium-range turboprop airliner Xian MA700 was announced by Chinese aircraft manufacturers of the company «Xi'an Aircraft Industrial Corporation» in 2007 year. The actual development of the aircraft was supposed to be conducted on the basis of a turboprop airliner model Xian MA600, however, after several years of development, the Chinese aircraft manufacturers have decided to modify the aircraft structure, providing higher flight performance future aircraft, and therefore the development process has been delayed, and only 2016, this aircraft has made its first flight.

According to official data management corporation «Xi'an Aircraft Industrial Corporation», serial production of turboprop aircraft Xian MA700 will have to turn in 2018 year, however, due to the more than 11-year development, its value may differ materially from those originally articulated, which in turn may reduce demand for the plane, and as a consequence, lead to the failure of the project, although at the moment the Chinese aviarazrabotchikov has at least 185 orders for the production of the aircraft.

A feature of the aircraft Xian MA700 is its high maneuverability and good handling, and, experts say that this is due mainly to the T-shaped tail, ensures a good stabilizing the aircraft during flight.

As well as the model of a turboprop airliner Xian MA600, the aircraft is exceptionally Xian MA700 passenger, and at the moment can not be used as a means of transport air. On board the airliner Xian MA700, depending on the cabin configuration, can accommodate up to 70 80 passengers, which allows efficient transport at regional and inter-regional air routes to 2300 kilometers length.

The power plant of the Xian MA700 passenger airliner includes two Pratt & Whitney Canada PW150C turboprop aircraft engines, each of which has a thrust force of 3200 hp, which allows the aircraft to accelerate to a maximum speed of 575 km / h, to a large extent surpassing turboprop aircraft of a similar type from other aircraft manufacturers.
