When he purchased two of only eight Windecker Eagles ever produced, Hang also bought the production rights and the type certificate for the design. China will honor the type certificate, he reported.
The plan is to produce refined copies of the Eagle for the burgeoning General Aviation movement in China. They will be used for the full range of GA activities.
He reports he is now working on building manufacturing facilities in Chengdu and Tongliao for the production of the Windecker aircraft.
Meanwhile, 98G, the Windecker Eagle being restored in Mooresville, North Carolina, is rapidly approaching an active runway. Sporting a long list of upgrades, the restoration will be test flown by Flight Test DER Len Fox under the Experimental Exhibition category in America before it is dismantled and shipped to China where it will be used for marketing.
