洪都航空工业集团总经济师杨力平4月25日对第一财经表示,目前上市公司洪都航空(600316.SH)参与投资和研制的猎鹰L15高级教练机今年计划交付12架到拉美和非洲市场,这也是该机型首次出口国外市场。
都航空工业集团总经济师杨力平4月25日对第一财经表示,目前上市公司洪都航空(600316.SH)参与投资和研制的猎鹰L15高级教练机今年计划交付12架到拉美和非洲市场,这也是该机型首次出口国外市场。
杨力平是在“第四届中国航空工业制造国际峰会”期间做出上述表示的。洪都航空是国内专业生产教练飞机和通用飞机的企业;此前,公司的主营产品是中级教练机K8飞机,目前已经占据同类飞机市场75%以上的份额。
 据第一财经了解,L15飞机无论在单价还是综合利润率上,都较K8飞机要高出很多。一架L15飞机的目录价格约在7000-8000万元,如果今 年可以实现12架L15飞机的首次交付,订单总额将近9.6亿元,这相当于洪都航空2011年18.25亿元营收的54.79%。
洪都航空2011年年报显示,公司当年实现净利8337万元。而根据该公司2012年一季报,公司今年前三个月累计净亏损2947.75万元,每股亏损0.0411元。
 对此,杨力平表示,业绩亏损主要是由于今年一季度产品交付量减少所致。他同时指出,对于航空制造企业来说,第一季度交付量都会比较少,而到三季度则会进入快速交付通道;今年公司相关产品的需求前景尚可,预计洪都航空全年业绩表现应强于去年。
杨力平进一步透露,目前教练机相关产品的收入占公司总营收的约四分之三;而除了继续拓展教练机领域,公司还在加大农林飞机等通用航空制造的拓展,目前正在对农林飞机进行改进研制,以拓展国内外市场。
目前,洪都航空已与西安飞机工业集团、中航飞机公司、江西省投资集团等7家公司共同投资设立了江西洪都商用飞机公司,主营国内、国际商用飞机大部件、零组件的设计、研制、生产、销售、维修及服务,以及航空产品的转包生产等。
杨力平就此透露,洪都商飞已经获得了生产国产大飞机C919飞机机身合同并供应波音747-8飞机零部件,预计2013年3月相关机身部件可以实现首次交付。

Ukraine conveys first engines for L-15 trainer airplane to China

Apr 27 at 20:30 | Interfax-Ukraine
Ukraine is delivering the first batch of AI-222-25F engines for new Chinese L-15 trainer airplanes.

A source well informed on the details of the Ukrainian-Chinese cooperation under the L-15 program told Interfax-Ukraine that the Chinese side is to certify the first batch of engines assembled in Ukraine by the end of week.

"Chinese specialists have arrived to Ukraine to certify the first batch of engines, this work is to be done by the end of week," the agency's interlocutor added.

The source did not disclose the volume of consignment.

"At present, we're continuing talks with our Chinese colleagues on further supplies of AI-222-25F engines to China and cooperation in their production," he said.

A contract on the supply of AI-222-25F engines produced in Ukraine to China was signed in spring 2011. The volume and the value of the contract have not been disclosed.

The L-15 is an airplane for training pilots of J-10, J-11, J-16 and other aircraft. Its maximum takeoff weight is 9,800 kilograms. Its length is 12.27 meters. The aircraft is 25% made of carbonate composite materials. The service life of these aircraft is 10,000 flight hours, or 30 years.

The AI-222-25F engine, which was designed by Ivchenko-Progress Enterprise and is produced at Zaporizhia-based OJSC Motor Sich, generates 4,200 kilograms of thrust when afterburning.

According to the L-15's designers, the aircraft will have a competitive price of $10 million, which will vary depending on the model.

Foreign mass media reported that China would soon design a light attack plane based on the L-15. At the moment, options for its armaments are being considered. The new aircraft will be offered to the Chinese air forces and for export. A similar plane could be also developed for the Chinese navy.

J-16? Is this a typo?

Also I bet we can expect some of these export L-15s to be used in roles other than 'training'
