BRITTEN-NORMAN SIGNS DEAL TO BRING THE ISLANDER TO CHINA

Britten-Norman 公司签署协议将海岛人飞机引进中国市场。

 

Britten-Norman, the aircraft manufacturer, has signed an historic contract with a major Beijing-based aviation business to bring its Islander Aircraft to the Chinese market.

Britten-Norman飞机制造公司与总部位于北京的一家通航公司签署了具有历史意义的协议,将其海岛人飞机引入中国市场。

 

The sales agreement, announced at RIAT 2018 between Britten-Norman and the Beijing Fangyuan General Aviation Co. Ltd, will see the latter actively promote and sell the Islander to typically small, regional local airlines with a need for a portfolio of aircraft types to meet their short-haul, high-frequency demands.

Britten-Norman和北京方圆通用航空有限公司于2018年在英国RIAT 航展上宣布双方合作协议,方圆公司将积极推动和销售海岛人飞机,以满足国内具有代表性的小型航空公司短距、高频的飞行需求。

 

The agreement will also support BFGA in its ambition to further grow China’s general aviation business which continues to expand at a breath-taking pace; Beijing is one the world’s largest cities with a high GDP per capita and burgeoning demand for local transport and infrastructure. Strategically well sited and with a committed investment of some 300 billion RMB earmarked for emerging industries, Beijing is also home to the University of Aeronautics and Astronautics, generally considered to be the country’s highest seat of learning for aviation business.

本协议还将支持北京方圆进一步发展中国通用航空业务的雄心,并且使其以惊人的速度发展。北京是世界上最大的城市之一,人均GDP很高,对当地交通和基础设施的需求迅速增长。北京的战略位置优越,投资约3000亿元人民币用于新兴产业。北京也是中国航空产业最高学府航空航天大学的所在地。

 

The Islander is one of Europe’s most successful and enduring designs, its success being attributed to its exemplary performance as a multi-role, high frequency, short-haul platform. The aircraft is renowned for its excellent performance and high operating reliability and offers an effective, dependable and low-cost solution for operators. The aircraft can operate in some of the world's harshest and most rugged environments, including all terrain operations from unprepared surfaces as short as 350m. 

海岛人是欧洲最成功、最持久的设计之一,它的成功源于它的多角色、高频率、短途平台的出色表现。该飞机以其卓越的性能和操作上较高的可靠性而闻名,并为操作人员提供有效、可靠和低成本的解决方案。该飞机可以在世界上最严酷和最崎岖的环境中飞行,包括在毫无准备的跑道上进行操作,甚至短至350米的地方也可以操作。

 

Britten-Norman Chief Executive William Hynett believes that the scale of the opportunity is enormous: “China is one of the few countries in the world that has yet to enjoy the benefits that the Islander and its associated equipment has to offer, and as such we are very pleased to be entering into this new agreement.

Britten-Norman公司总裁William Hynett先生认为在中国,海岛人飞机有着巨大的潜在市场:“中国是世界上少数几个没有享受到海岛人及其相关设备所带来的好处的国家之一,因此,我们很高兴能够签署这项新协定。”

 

“Beijing Fangyuan General Aviation Co Ltd has a proven reputation and track record in the region and a strong desire to grow the general aviation business in China. Initial signs are already very positive and with BFGA’s support we are hoping to turn this early interest into positive sales. We also hope that over time we can further evolve our relationship into a distribution agreement and long-term partnership for the supply of Islanders into the region.”

“北京方圆通用航空有限公司在业内拥有良好的声誉和良好的业绩记录,并渴望在中国发展通用航空业务。在签署初期已经表现出其积极性,希望在北京方圆通航的支持努力下能够取得优异的销售业绩。我们还希望,随着时间的推移,我们的关系可以进一步发展,成为长期合作伙伴,为海岛人飞机进入中国市场提供进一步支持。

 

”The original Islander was designed to allow ease of access on short-haul sectors to remote locations and has been extremely successful in achieving that role both cost effectively and efficiently. Building on that original concept, the Islander has since been through a series of product refinements. The latest version of the Islander includes enlarged baggage bay door options, 3-bladed scimitar propellers, low drag fairings, modern interior, all new ergonomically designed leather seats, on board entertainment options and club seating arrangements. 

“最初的海岛人设计是为了使短途运输部门能够很容易地进入偏远地区,并且非常成功地实现了这一目的,既经济又高效。基于该原始概念,海岛人经历了一系列的产品改进。最新一代的海岛人包括扩大行李舱门、3叶螺旋桨、低阻力整流罩、现代化的内饰设计,全新的人体工程学设计的真皮座椅,机载娱乐设备和俱乐部式座椅的安排。

 

As well as performance, the Islander also offers low direct operating costs and minimal maintenance and has a fuselage and cabin design that can be easily configured for a number of roles including cargo, air ambulance and parachuting. Under-wing hard points can also support an array of pods or spray booms, adding to the aircraft’s flexibility. 

此外在性能方面,海岛人的直接运行成本和维护费用非常经济。机身和机舱设计,可以轻松实现多种功能,包括货物运输、空中救援和跳伞活动。翼下吊点可支持舱外吊装设备和安装舱外水箱,增加了飞机的灵活性。

 

Britten-Norman focuses on all aspects of aviation, from R&D and aircraft design, through to the production, manufacture and maintenance of a variety aircraft products. It also provides training and operational support throughout the aviation value chain.

Britten-Norman公司专注于航空的各个方面,从研发和飞机设计到各种飞机产品的生产、制造和维护,为整个航空价值链提供培训和运营支持。
