The Reignwood Group has agreed to acquire 10 Cessna Grand Caravan EX Amphibian aircraft through the Cessna-AVIC facility in Shijiazhuang.

The aircraft will be used to operate tourism flights in the south-east part of China.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) granted approval for the Cessna Grand Caravan EX to operate on floats in China in March 2014.

Bill Harris, Cessna’s vice president, sales, Asia and Asia Pacific said: “The Cessna Grand Caravan EX is incredibly durable and versatile, exactly what Reignwood was looking for to fit the types of missions they are planning.”

“The Grand Caravan EX offers the performance commuter operators desire while providing the comfort and cabin features passengers appreciate. The options for how the Grand Caravan EX can be configured means the aircraft can be put into service for freight deliveries, commuter air travel, executive travel, aerial survey or tourism, all while being durable enough for both on- and off-airport operations and for amphibious use with floats,” added Harris.

At AERO Friedrichshafen 2014 in Germany, Cessna delivered the 100th Grand Caravan EX aircraft.

More than 2,200 Caravan aircraft have been manufactured by Cessna since the aircraft was introduced in 1985.
