Xian ships key parts for second AG600 amphibian

Jan 11,2017

AVIC unit Xian Aircraft has delivered key parts for the second AG600 amphibian being built in the southern city of Zhuhai.

Major changes for the second aircraft include some structural modifications, as well as strengthening of the leading edges of the wings, says AVIC in a statement.

Xian aircraft produces the aircrafts wings in Xian before shipping them to China Aviation Industry General Aircraft (CAIGA) in Zhuhai.

The forward fuselage is produced in Chengdu, while the rear fuselage section and tail are made in Hanzhong.

The AG600 made its public debut on the Air Show China static line in November.


AVIC is some way from getting a production certificate for the type. A production certificate from the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) means that each aircraft produced does not need to be independently certificated.


The AG600 will undertake a range of missions, and its target market is domestic parapublic organisations. Its main functions are search and rescue and transport.


The aircraft can also serve as a water bomber, with a large tank located under the forward half of the aircraft.

Xian aircraft also produces the middle fuselage for C919. Guorong YANG, Chief Engineer of MA700 will share their experience of fuselage manufacturing on
Civil Aircraft Industry International Forum 2017 which is hosted by Chinese Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics and will take place on May 10th - 11th, 2017.
