Chinese aircraft manufacturers are planning to build a number of new aircraft. This is in addition to the ARJ21 large regional jet, which is expected to be introduced by the end of this year in China.
Avic I, which is one of the country’s two aviation manufacturing companies, is planning a new turboprop transport, a new business jet and a new general aviation aircraft. The company’s strategy is to build a complete family of aircraft at plants in China. These would include turboprop aircraft with up to 70 seats, as well as its ARJ21 with 100 seats.
AviChina, another aircraft company, is deciding whether to build a new regional or business jet in China, in addition to the Embraer ERJ 145 line, which it currently builds.
