RX1E drew lots of attention from Europe since it participated in many international aircraft exhibitions last year. "But the domestic market has great potential," Zhao said.

According to the CAAC, development of the general aviation industry will speed up during the 13th Five-Year Plan (2016-20). By the end of 2020, there will be more than 5,000 all-purpose aircraft and more than 500 general aviation airports around the country.

However, the general aviation industry in China is still at the initial stage. Therefore, LGAA is doing a great deal of work on market cultivation.
