辽宁凯博成功收购TOPCUB

美国CubCrafters小熊飞机公司(下文简称“美国小熊公司”)很高兴地宣布与中国辽宁凯博通用航空器股份有限公司(下文简称“LCA”)达成交易。交易内容包括:中国LCA对美国联邦航空管理局FAA颁发的标准23部运营类型号CC18-180 顶级小熊(Top Cub)飞机型号合格证TC相关所有知识产权以及获得的加拿大、澳大利亚、新西兰、中国的型号认可证VTC进行全资收购,并授权美国小熊公司可继续在中国以外的市场进行生产和销售此飞机(中国工厂设立在辽宁的营口和大连,待生产许可证PC获得以后即将开始中国生产)。这个项目经过几年的努力,顺利拿到了中国民用航空总局CAAC颁发的CC18-180型号认可证VTC, 并获得了美国外国投资委员会(Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States “CFIUS”)的审查批准。这项新的并购与合作协议将顶级小熊Top Cub型号飞机成功引入正在发展的中国通用航空市场。
CubCrafters is pleased to announce an agreement with the Liaoning Cub Aircraft Corporation (LCA) of China. The deal includes the sale of their CC18 Top Cub Type Certificate and a corresponding license agreement with LCA for CubCrafters to continue manufacturing and marketing of the aircraft for non‐Chinese markets. Four years in the making, this agreement included validation of the CC18 Type Certificate by the Chinese aviation authority (CAAC). The new relationship introduces Cub‐type aircraft into the growing Chinese GA marketplace.

两家公司都认为顶级小熊飞机Top Cub非常适合正在高速发展的中国通用航空市场,包括飞行训练、航拍和测绘、森林巡防、航空物流、农业喷洒以及私人使用。顶级小熊飞机Top Cub是久经考验的一款飞机,可以在复杂地形和荒野降落和起飞,相比于其他航空器更加简单、耐用,运营也更加经济实用。顶级小熊飞机可配置莱康明(Lycoming) O-360 C4P发动机或卓越(Superior) Vantage O-360 A3A2发动机,并可装备雪橇或水用/水陆两用的浮筒。超过1000磅的有效载荷,使该机型更适合中国机场少而制约通航发展的瓶颈,将很快满足中国市场期待已久的用户。
Both parties agree the Top Cub is well suited for many roles in the emerging Chinese general aviation market including flight training, aerial photography and mapping, ag spraying, and of course personal use. The Top Cub is a proven design: simple, rugged, and economical to operate relative to other aircraft options. Powered by either the Lycoming O‐360 C4P or the Superior Vantage O‐360 A3A2, the Top Cub can be configured in a number of ways including skis, and both straight and amphibious floats. With a useful load of over 1,000 lbs. it is expected to be well received in the growing Chinese market.

中国LCA对顶级小熊CC18-180机型的型号合格证TC的收购,以及达成的与此交易相关的长期支持合约,将有助于美国小熊公司开发新的机型。长期合约中包括:中国LCA委托美国小熊公司继续管理美国联邦航空局(FAA)要求的持续运行安全(COS),以及授权顶级小熊飞机Top Cub在美国和其他地区生产与销售,并在全球范围内无限期地为顶级小熊Top Cub机队提供技术支持。
This sale of the CC18‐180 Type Certificate to LCA, and corresponding long term support contracts, will fund CubCrafters ambitious lineup of new‐generation aircraft projects. Long term contracts integral to the deal include CubCrafters’ ongoing management of FAA‐required Continued Operational Safety (COS), manufacturing and marketing the Top Cub for the US and other markets, and providing worldwide fleet support indefinitely.

作为美国小熊公司的创始人和CEO,Jim Richmond先生强调:“这个新的协议对美国小熊公司的未来发展有重要帮助,不但能拓展国际市场,并且对公司现有和未来的项目发展提供了资金支持。尽管美国小熊公司和中国LCA公司是两个分开的独立公司,但是我们未来在中国市场的合作是很有前景的”。
Jim Richmond, CubCrafters founder and CEO indicates, “This new agreement helps position CubCrafters for the future, both in terms of expansion into international markets, and funding current and future development projects. Though CubCrafters and LCA remain separate and independent entities, opportunities to cooperate in the Chinese market together look promising”.

中国LCA公司CEO钱志军先生表示:“当我在2011年第一次同美国小熊公司会面时,我就决心将这款经典飞机引入到中国。这个型号飞机收购协议的达成表明了这个目标已初步实现,并开始进入下一阶段。我们非常期待在全中国的天空很快看到她飞翔的身影。我非常感谢美国小熊飞机团队对这次型号飞机收购协议的达成所做的付出,也非常期待双方在今后共同努力,在中国获得成功。”
作为该项目的顾问, 丝翼通航(Silk Wings Aviation) 的总裁张弩强调: “这个项目是中美通航合作的一个典范, 我们相信双方会精诚合作, 实现双赢。 希望这个项目为今后其他通航类中外知识产权转移和合作项目奠定良好的基础。”
Zhijun Qian, CEO of LCA, states, “From my first meeting with CubCrafters in 2011, I was inspired to introduce this aircraft into China. This agreement represents the beginning of the next phase of our vision to introduce this iconic aircraft into Chinese general aviation. We look forward to seeing her flying throughout China soon! I thank the CubCrafters team for their cooperation with this agreement and look forward to working with them to make our efforts in China a success”.
