Amazing isn't it - just about everything we touch is made there. Can't help feeling that one day we are really going to pay for this, well maybe our grandkids. In the meantime the Dollar talks.

I highlighted the Evektor because it is a plane that we have exposure to in the Australian market.... there are however many others made their which are not listed on the list above and are sold pretty much in the USA market alone.... Boeing are also having a lot of stuff made in China as well which does not appear on this list

It's funny how Evektor only has their oldest (current) and simplest design built there. One they don't actually sell in Australia.

 

I wonder if we'll start to see more and more "native" Chinese aircraft. It wouldn't be hard to buy the rights to a popular/proven plans-only home build design, get it up to ASTM standards and sell it as LSA in the US and here.

 

So far one of the reasons Chinese companies are buying US manufacturers like Cirrus and Continental Motors as certification. Same reason Honda is designing and building their jet in the US. That makes it easier to be FAA certified and when you are FAA certified, you are world certified. I wonder how they would go if they got it certified in China and then tried to have that extended to other countries...

Great thing about pope mobiles is: you can see out of them really, really well. :)

 

Mind you, the paint scheme of that EuroStar in the photo isn't doing it any favours. Mine looks much better!

 

And the new ones look very sleek...

I wish it were the Jetson mobile!

 

I reckon the one in the picture is a EuroStar. But yeah, my SportStar looks the same on the outside, it just has some internal strengthening to carry the 550 KG MTOW.

 

But my paint job is cooler!
