Our modern production base in Luyanghu is a full-cycle aviation industry and infrastructure facility. This industrial complex will encompass aviation R&D, testing and production capacities. It is going to be one of the biggest R&D and production centers of aerospace industry in the world.
Planned area of the production base in Luyanghu is 80,000 sq. m. Total amount of the planned investment is 200 billion yuan, site area – 810,726 sq. m. Construction will take about 5 years (till 2020), mass production of aircrafts and components is due to start within the next 10 years (till 2026).
New Era Aviation R&D and production base is a part of Luyanghu Technological Development Zone, which was included into the 13th Five-Year Plan of Economic Development China. It is situated in Weinan, Shaanxi province (with the capital in Xi’an).
The location of the base was chosen for a good reason. Luyanghu is an ideal space for both large-aircraft test flights and for aviation logistics in general. Development zone is located in a spacious valley with shallow terrain and stable geological structure, favorable land and air resources. The airport, located in the Luyanghu development zone, with airspace radius of 20 km and a height of 2 km below sea level, is the only one in Shaanxi Province and is rare in China. What is more, the design of the runway is “three in one”, providing options of landing on the ground, meadows and water, which is also unique to China.
Modern industrial complex Luyanghu development zone, Weinan City, is a key area of provincial level development approved and established by the People’s Government of Shaanxi Province in August 2007. General aviation is a driver of the province development.
Distance from Luyanghu to the provincial capital, Xi’an, is 78 km. The development zone is a part of the economic infrastructure of Xi’an, one of the largest cities in China.
Transport infrastructure of the zone is ideal for industrial purposes. It is connected to high-speed Beijing – Kunming highway on the north and Lianyungang – Khorgos on the south. Luyanghu is crossed by Yan’an highway, and three railway tracks with three stations are located near the development zone.
Testing airfield. “Pucheng” is a testing ground for internal use located just 1 km from our production base. An airspace of 340,000 sq. m. is open as of this day with a runway of category 2B sized 1,200 m by 35 m.
A runway of category 4E, measuring 4,000 m by 85 m, is under construction in order to conduct test flights of large-size cargo and passenger aircrafts. Upon its completion, the new runway will not only be unique to China for its natural and technical specifications, but also become one of the largest runways of this type in the world.
