A signing ceremony for a Chinese-Russian general aviation aircraft production project was recently held in Beijing.
At the ceremony, China Oriental Sciences Group signed an agreement with China-Russia International Investment Company and a Russian aircraft design company to build in Erdos a base for manufacturing small four-to-12-seat general aviation planes, a general aviation research base, a general aviation pilot training base, and an aviation club. The project involves a total investment of 8 billion yuan, and the manufacturing base is expected to have an annual output of 400 planes.
