Cessna Aircraft received Civil Aviation Administration of China certification today for the Citation XLS+, clearing the way for deliveries in China. This certification is another step toward beginning operations at Cessna-Avic Aircraft Zhuhai for final assembly and delivery of Citation XLS+s to customers in China. Approval of the business license for the Cessna-Avic joint venture is expected from the Ministry of Commerce of China this summer, Cessna said. Cessna-Avic plans to deliver the first XLS+ assembled at the Zhuhai facility to a Chinese customer in November at Airshow China.
