R&D practical experience
We have developed a number of proprietary products that showcase our core competitiveness and filled several domestic gaps in the general aviation sector with our strong strategic determination, rational development path, efficient and capable team, and independent research and development system. In the field of full-composite manned light aircraft, we have developed a light sport aircraft (LSA) "Aurora", China's first LSA that has obtained civil aviation airworthiness certification. This LSA has the capability of high altitude take-off and landing and automatic piloting. With over 240 units delivered domestically, it has become a star model in China's general aviation sector, successfully surpassing foreign brands. In the fields of unmanned helicopters, fixed-wing UAVs, multirotor UAVs, and new energy vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) UAVs, we have developed several differentiated UAV products that have been widely applied in areas such as cargo delivery, emergency rescue, remote sensing and telemetry. In the field of aviation-related services, we have provided services such as research and development of complete aircraft and their parts, provision of process equipment, and tests for leading enterprises such as Volkswagen, Aero Engine Corporation of China (AECC), and SF UAS. We have been developing outstanding, safe, reliable and cost-effective general aviation products, and our key projects under research and development include purely electric VTOL aircraft and high-end luxury full-carbon fiber five-seat aircraft.
We have obtained various qualifications and certifications within the civil aviation industry, including the Type Certificate (TC) issued by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC), the Production Certificate (PC), the Light Sport Aircraft (LSA) airworthiness certification granted by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) of the United States, the Certificate of Airworthiness for LSA issued by the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) of Australia, qualifications for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) pilot training and the AS9100D International Aerospace Quality System Certification. We are one of the limited high-tech privately-owned enterprises in China that possesses all of these qualifications within the civil aviation sector.
