Progressive Aerodyne, Inc. has received an aircraft production certificate (PC) for the Progressive Aerodyne SeaRey from the CAAC East China Regional Administration, an important step for the SeaRey in serving the Chinese market.

It is the first PC granted to a U.S. aircraft manufacturer by the Chinese aviation regulator.

Progressive Aerodyne has received the type design approval (TDA) for the SeaRey from the regulator before getting the PC on October 9, paving the way for amphibious aircraft to enter service in China.

Before issuing the PC, the audit team of the CAAC East China Regional Administration went to the U.S. to review the aircraft, which is the first time for the authority's airworthiness force to organize the review of aircraft production in the U.S.

The SeaRey is a two-seat, single-engine, light sport aircraft with the FAA certificate. It has secured about 20 orders in China. Progressive Aerodyne produces 32 SeaRey aircraft each year.
