AVIC Harbin Aircraft Industry Company Ltd delivered one Y-12E aircraft to Shandong Kongzhongkuaixian Aviation Service Co at the 12th China International Aviation and Aerospace Expo in Zhuhai, South China’s Guangdong province, on Nov 6.

Shandong Kongzhongkuaixian Aviation Service Co revealed that the company will purchase an additional Y-12E aircraft and two Y-12F aircraft from AVIC Harbin Aircraft Industry Company Ltd, which are expected to be used for short-distance passenger transportation and sightseeing flights.

The Y-12E and Y-12F are both variants of the Y-12 series, the most popular civil aircraft series ever produced in China; and 210 of them have been sold in domestic and overseas markets, serving 30 countries and regions.

The Y-12E is a regional turboprop aircraft. The model was certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) in December 2001.

The Y-12E can be configured to satisfy a range of different requirements due to its flexibility and high-performance functions. They can be used for passenger or cargo transportation, carrying parachutists, seed or insecticide spraying, aerial photography, emergency rescue, maritime surveys, and weather monitoring.

The aircraft is especially valued for its ability to operate at high altitude areas.

The Y-12F is the latest model of the Y-12 series. It features impressive capabilities, including in terms of its range and speed, as well as its ability to operate on a single engine.

It’s also the only Chinese aircraft model that has passed the examination of the US Aircraft Evaluation Group.
