Sino Swearingen Aircraft Corp. (SSAC) announced Thursday that
mass production of customer aircraft has begun at its production
facilities. FAA certification of the SJ30-2 is on schedule and
expected later this year.

high rate for the FAA certification and will accomplish virtually
everything necessary within a few months, "says Dr. Carl L. Chen,
CEO and President. "Now we are concentrating our efforts on
