As a Chinese living in the factory of the world’s people, most proud, of course, is that one day people in high Technology fields exported overseas. Yesterday, the media quoted the French “ideas” magazine, U.S. Air Force has already ordered a Chinese industrial group worth more than $ 6 million trainer, the French media also commented, “This is simply a revolution.”
this news is also causing hot. Some Internet users praise, indeed subversive of the day. Anything is possible. The United States is not the best, and so on. Made in China really entered the U.S. military organization? World Academy of Military Sciences Military Research Associate Colonel Zhao Wei Bin last night to accept the “Newsline” editor Luan red internship interview, this time being part of a beautiful vision.
Zhao Wei Bin: from Cirrus’s announcement on the official website of view, he was released July 5, a press report saying that the U.S. Air Force Academy is going to purchase 25 (SR-20) as the primary The trainer, a June 28 message, the aircraft fly through the company and the company’s acquisition of Cirrus is the delivery on June 28 just completed, that the French media reported that China’s trainer to buy this is a very inaccurate, in fact it’s the aircraft or Cirrus its own competitive products.
Colonel, according to Zhao Wei Bin introduced the U.S. West Sharp Corporation Founded in 1984, is a global leader in small aircraft manufacturer, headquartered in Minnesota, USA Andrews city, after the acquisition by the aircraft to fly through, but the work team, the core of the design remains unchanged. Cirrus SR-20 is the flagship product, because of its excellent flight performance, digital control systems and equipment landed safely in the world with a stable sales.
wholly owned Chinese company, product still is in America. Media to highlight the Chinese people as the U.S. military suppliers, Chinese products do not emphasize this with the very different U.S. military supply, causing many readers misunderstood, can not help but ridiculous. In fact, the U.S. military Chinese training aircraft tender at the beginning of sensitive news items had lot of heated discussions. For a time, quite a concern in the development of trainer.
trainer, training, basic flying skills of the professional pilot aircraft, divided into elementary, intermediate and advanced three. Primary trainer, responsible for initial flight training new recruits mission, including takeoff, landing, visual flight, etc., there is a very important task is to identify promising screening of students. Intermediate trainer, used to train the queue flight, instrument flight and so on. Senior student trainer is the final stage of flight, to weather flight training complex, a simple tactical actions such as, in some countries have abolished religion, only the beginning of high and higher education, China now has three senior trainer, K8, GL9 and L15, L15 design of advanced, equipment excellent, well received.
Earlier this year, the United States, “Jane’s Defense Weekly” reported that China Aviation Industry Group, prepared to work with partners with U.S. aerospace companies, with China the new L15 advanced trainer aircraft the United States a bid advanced trainer project. Unfortunately, six months later, this thing is no follow-up development.
L15 advanced trainer aircraft performance, for it can be put into the U.S. and other overseas markets, Chinese people are concerned. In this regard, well-known military commentator Song Xiaojun that Americans buy Chinese higher education is not nearly the possibility of machine.
Song Xiaojun: Generally to purchase a country’s national senior trainer he might buy that country’s fighter, so that senior trainer export general fighters to keep up the export of inconceivable that the United States from China to buy fighter jets.
However, companies like Cirrus SR-20 primary trainer, Song Xiaojun that the primary trainer aircraft produced in China want to put down a large overseas markets.
Song Xiaojun: China’s primary trainer will sooner or later the international market, from a performance and price point must be very, very appropriate, China’s own pilot training, domestic purchases is relatively large, because We rarely use the low-end foreign trainer, so that we absorb a considerable part of their country, so it has some cost advantages, while its purchase through a large number of domestic as well as its tolerance after the technical reliability of aircraft will be getting better and better .
