Recommended Posts

Sounds like it is a China modernised (less ugly) version of the Shorts Skyvan...

I do like the STOL capability - 540 meters. This could be a great option for bringing cargo into Pangkor/Tioman. Seeing it can carry 3 x LD3.


Wonder what are the advantage to buyers to assemble in alor setar instead of Harbin?

 

Closer to ASEAN countries? Doesnt answer for ME and African countries though....

 

Maybe it also to remove the stigma of a China brand?

I feel its more like for US-friendly nations that wants the Y-12F but do not want to be seen buying from China.

 

I dont know -world economic relations is a tricky thing :p

 

Not sure about aircrafts. Maybe aircraft parts?

Several announcements like this in the past that never came to anything - highly likely this one will disappear without a single aircraft being built.

This is the way it is in Malaysia. Sometimes politicians need to show that they are doing something for the people. Sometimes, businesses use politicians to help them sell products.
