The Chinese authorities have granted type inspection authorisation (TIA) to Xian Aircraft's MA600 freighter.

This means that the turboprop has entered the next stage of certification, where it can undergo flight tests, the airframer says.

The TIA is usually issued when examination of technical data required for type certification is completed or has reached a stage where it appears the aircraft will meet requirements.

The MA600 freighter completed its first flight at Xian's Yanliang airport last October.
