China's Xi'an Yanliang National Aviation Hi-tech Industrial Base (CAIB) has acquired five Pacific Aerospace P-750 XSTOL aircraft, and will become the type's exclusive distributor in China.

"We have carefully reviewed our partnership options in China over the last few months and we are delighted to have partnered with CAIB, who shares the same values, ambition and goals as us," says Damian Camp, chief executive of New Zealand-based Pacific Aerospace.

The 10-seater P-750 is optimised for operations in rugged environments and is used in countries such as Nepal, Indonesia, Papua New Guinea and Africa. It can take off with just 720 feet (220m) with a payload of 4,200lb (1905kg) above its empty weight of 3,300lb.
