Latest customers include two fast growing FTOs in China –HeBei Zhiyuan General Aviation and Anhui Sky-Aviation International Flight Academy Co – who will benefit not only from Mechtronix’ proven FTD reliability and performance, but also from the company’s dedicated customer support services delivered through its offices in Chengdu.
