The cabin has been designed in full consideration with passenger comfort. The spacious cabin and comfortable environment make the passenger comfort comparable to jet airliners.

Low operating cost is one of the highest priorities in MA60's design. The MA60 has the lowest DOC in its class thanks to its competitive price, high reliability and dispatch rate as well as less maintenance cost.

Good airfield adaptability

The MA60 is designed to be able to take-off and land on those unpaved or semi-prepared airfields such as soil, grass or grave surface. This feature makes the aircraft ideal to fly not only to hubs but also to remote area.

STOL performance

The MA60 can take-off and land on short runways.

MA60"Hot and high" capability

The aircraft is of good "hot and high" performance. Powered by PW-127J engines, it can take-off with more payloads in hot climate at high elevation.

Multi-hop capability

Thanks to its long range, the MA60 can offer good multi-hop operations and charter capability.

All-weather operation capability

The MA60 is able to adapt to extreme weather environments such as icing condition.



Multi-role operation

The MA60 is designed to offer a good flying platform for multi-role operations such as executive transport, cargo transport, maritime surveillance, troop transport and parachuting, air ambulance and other special missions.
