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.
"In the last two years we have progressed at an exceptionally
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
providing the ultimate light jet to the business world. First
delivery is targeted before the end of this year."
