Re: CAT sold the Express design and assets

Any news if anyone or any organization even if Chinese will support express aircraft or sell new airframes and maybe have a builder assist program?

Re: New owner of a project.

Congrats on the purchase. I talked to the guy helping me who used to work for Composite Aircraft Tech, he said he's booked over the next couple of years but I gave him your contact info (I'm assuming you're the same guy I spoke to on Facebook).

Re: Saw this on Barnstormers today.

I wonder if this was the same Chinese company that bought the Glassair designed assets? Then they would have 2 seater and 4 seater vinyl ester products with similar designs.

CAT had no cad files, only forms and plugs.

CAT sold the Express design and assets

Confirmed yesterday. I have two independent, reliable sources that individually relayed the same information that Composite Aircraft Technology has sold off the design and all remaining Express assets to a Chinese group. Not sure if it was the same group that bought the Glassair assets.

Re: Saw this on Barnstormers today.

CAT sold the Express design and assets to a Chinese company. Everything got packed up, including the remaining demo, stuffed in a container and shipped to China. I wonder if it is the same group that purchased the Glassair assets. Are they going for vinyl ester domination?
