AVIC LE500

Introduction

Starting back in the 1950’s AVIC is China’s leading manufacturer of aircraft and parts.

The first Chinese produced aircraft, the CJ-5, successfully completed its maiden flight in July 1954 and ever since the efforts in research and the development of numerous military and civil aircraft has made AVIC a global player within the international aircraft industry.

AVIC’s product range comprises fighter jets, like the FC-20, passenger aircraft, like the MA60, MA600, MA700, transport aircraft, civil helicopters and general aircraft.

Nevergreen is proud to announce that we were awarded with sole distributorship for AVIC’s LE500 light training and business aircraft, which offers an unprecedented combination of reliability, safety and economical operation.

Aircraft features

The LE500 in its conventional configuration is a low-wing propeller-driven monoplane with a full motion vertical tail, retractable tricycle landing gears and a single piston diesel engine.

The aircraft, a single pilot vehicle, has four seats including the pilot’s in its basic version and five for the economic version. The service life of its airframe counts up to 10,000 flight hours. The aircraft is designed and certified as per the CAAC CCAR-23-R2 requirements (approved and confirmed by SA-CAA) for normal category aircrafts.

The highly advanced, low-consuming diesel engine, as well as the economical purchase price make it an almost predestined training and private aircraft.

With modifications, it can be used as a 5 seat business aircraft, tourism plane, for agriculture and forestry, animal husbandry, fishing and other environmental tasks. It can also be used for air surveying, photography, aviation clubs, private flight, military and paramilitary missions.
