Cessna's China Contract
Sunday, August 28, 2005
Cessna Aircraft has signed an agreement to deliver 42 172 Skyhawks for ab initio training with the Civil Aviation Flight University of China (CAFUC). Twenty of the aircraft will be equipped with the Garmin G1000 glass cockpit. Delivery is scheduled to begin in 2006. This will increase CAFUC's training capacity from 600 to 1,000 students a year. The growth of China's aviation industry has stimulated the need for more pilots, and the increasing demand for pilots exceeds China's training capacity. Like many countries throughout the world, China is experiencing a rapid and significant growth in commercial aviation, which it expects to continue.
CAFUC is government-owned and the country's largest flight training school. It is currently responsible for training about 90% of the pilots produced in China.
