Chinese Cert Allows Home-Market Registration
Earlier this week, Cirrus Design Corporation told ANN the
company has received full certification for the SR20 and SR22 from
the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) -- meaning
Chinese owners of Cirrus planes can now register their planes in
their home country, instead of flying with N-numbers (which were
likely met with some curious looks on the ramp...)
Cirrus says CAAC certification will also expedite its
development of market specific products that address the wants and
needs of Chinese customers.
"Cirrus has worked closely with the CAAC, which has given
generously of its time and focus to make this certification a
reality," said Cirrus Regional Director of China and South-East
Asia, Peter Claeys. The Chinese sales team, based in Shanghai, has
been demonstrating a Cirrus SR22 GTS since May 2006 and expects to
sell ten to twelve airplanes in the first year.
As Aero-News reported, Cirrus
opened its first sales center in China last December.
Cirrus reports the company has a five-year corporate plan to
boost visibility and accessibility of personal aviation in China
and South East Asia. By working with the CAAC on
regulations and infrastructure development, Cirrus hopes to expand
the use of personal aviation in the region overall.
"China and South East Asia play a vital role in the strategic
growth of Cirrus. We are dedicated to exposing the value of
personal aviation in general and, specifically, to expanding the
concept of the Cirrus personal transportation aircraft in the
pan-Asian market." said Executive Vice-President of Sales &
Marketing, John M. Bingham.
