A ceremony to mark Team Tango’s partnership with the THXH Hubei Aviation Co. for the production of general aviation aircraft was held last Friday at Williston Airport.
Local dignataries joined Phil Gardner, general manager of Revolutin Aviation d/b/a Team Tango and a Chinese delegation that included Dezhang Li, Xiuquan Ge, Bo Chen, Huimin Song, Abrahahm Liang and Hong Ren for a tour of the airport and the plant where the Rapier, a four-seat aircraft and the Tango 2, a two-seat aircraft, are manufactured.
In November 2010 Chinese officials opened lower air space over China and since then the demand for aircraf has escalated.
After much research, Liang discovered that Team Tango, which has been manufacturing aircraft for over 10 years, was an ideal fit for what his company needed.
Research and development was done here in Williston and actual production will be done in the Chinese province of Hubei. Team Tango will act as distributor in North America, South America and Europe while THXH covers the Asian markets.
