Harbin Aircraft Industry (Group) Co., Ltd. (HAIG), often shortened to Hafei (simplified Chinese: 哈飞; traditional Chinese: 哈飛; pinyin: Hāfēi), is an aircraft manufacturing company headquartered in Pingfang District, Harbin, Heilongjiang province, China.[3] It was previously called Harbin Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation (HAMC) in English.[citation needed]

The company was founded in 1952 to manufacture planes for domestic sales, but today it supplies various components for foreign aerospace companies. It is a subsidiary of the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC).

A subsidiary of Harbin Aircraft Manufacturing Corporation — Hafei Motor, is one of the major automobile manufactures in China.

History[edit]

The 1st factory opened in 1952 to repair aircraft. In 1958, it began producing licensed copies of Soviet aircraft. It produced the Z-5, the Mil Mi-4 helicopter, and the H-5 light bomber — a copy of the Ilyushin Il-28.

It then produced the Harbin Y-11 a light twin-engined utility aircraft — an aircraft of its own design and not a licensed copy. The Harbin Y-12 which followed, while similar to the Y-11, was a largely new aircraft.

Subsidiaries[edit]

  • Hafei Motors, a producer of automobile engines; sedans; MPVs; and mini vehicles, small trucks and vans that see commercial use. Subsidiaries include the auto-making Hafei Motor Co Ltd and the engine maker Harbin Dongan Auto Engine Co.
