Textron Aviation has announced that Sichuan Longhao Flight Training Co., (Longhao Flight Training School) in China, has signed a purchase agreement for 20 Cessna Skyhawk piston aircraft. The aircraft, which are expected to be delivered throughout 2022, will be utilized for primary pilot training in southwest and central China, further expanding and enhancing Longhoa’s training efforts.

China continues to experience a growing number of licensed pilots in recent years following the General Office of the State Council’s efforts to accelerate the training and development of pilots.

The school currently utilizes 14 Skyhawk aircraft and three flight simulators for pilot training, as well as a Cessna Citation M2 as an advanced training aircraft.
