Adam Aircraft late last week officially announced that Zhong Hang Tai General Aviation Airlines, based in Hainan, China, has placed a firm order for 50 A700 very light jets (VLJs). The order was formalized during the European Business Aviation Convention and Exhibition (EBACE) last month and facilitated through a partnership with Ameritech. Jason Fan, CEO of the airline, said the choice came down to interior cabin space. "We made the A700 our choice because it has the largest cabin space of all the VLJs," and its twin tails "remind people of a Formula 1 race car," according to Fan. A700 owners in China that are part of this program "will be served by a professional pilot/aircraft manager" available to operators for flights and training through a renewable six-month term.
