TIANJIN, Sept. 13 (Xinhua) -- China Aviation Industry Helicopter Corp., Ltd. will manufacture 10 civilian helicopters this year with the help of its newly opened plant in north China's Tianjin Municipality, according to the plant's general manager Wang Bin.

He added that three of the company's models will perform during the first Tianjin International Helicopter Exposition, which will take place from Thursday to Sunday this week.
