For Chinese celebrities and billionaires, buying one private jet would serve as a symbol of success, but for Sun Yingui, the decision to purchase 35 aircraft is purely a matter of business.

Sun, chairman and founder of Beijing Bailong Green Science and Technology Enterprise Co, signed an agreement with Progressive Aerodyne Inc, an amphibious airplane maker in the United States, to buy 20 Searey seaplanes at the 10th China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition held in Zhuhai, Guangdong province, earlier this month.

He also agreed to buy 11 US-made Cirrus planes and four European-made Airbus helicopters during China's largest air show. The deals made him the biggest private buyer at the air show.
