“The opening of China’s low-altitude airspace has boosted the pilot-training market in the region, and this additional order further demonstrates Cessna Skyhawk’s continued leadership in pilot training around the world,” said Kevin Wu, Cessna’s vice president of international sales, Greater China and Mongolia Region.
Shandong Hairuo General Aviation, based in Binzhou city, Shandong province, China, is a Part 91 general aviation operator, as well as an authorized sales representative and an authorized customer service facility for Cessna single-engine aircraft in China.
