Trans-Pacific Aerospace Company Receives SAE AS81820, SAE AS81934 Certification; Becomes Only Qualified Manufacturer In China

Trans-Pacific Aerospace Company, Inc. (OTCBB: TPAC) announced today that its China subsidiary has passed all qualification testing for SAE Aerospace Standard 81820 and has received formal written qualification approval from the U.S. Navy, becoming the first and only manufacturer in China qualified to make bearings under this standard and under SAE-AS81934.

Over 3,000 AS81820 and AS81934 parts are used in every commercial aircraft made by such manufacturers as Airbus and Boeing, and must be replaced regularly.

"We are delighted to be the only SAE-certified bearing manufacturer in China," said Bill McKay, Trans-Pacific Aerospace CEO. "We're now on the QPL supplier list which allows us to pursue long term competitive contracts not only for aircraft and sub-assemblies made in China by Airbus and Boeing, but throughout the world."

China is the world's largest aviation market outside of the United States, with Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), the country's dominant aerospace contractor, forecasting that China's commercial aircraft fleet will more than triple in size to 6,309 by 2031, from 1,755 aircraft at the end of 2011.

Godfrey Guangzhou Aerospace Bearings, a wholly owned foreign enterprise of Godfrey (China) Limited, Trans-Pacific Aerospace Company's subsidiary, is also qualified to manufacture SAE-AS81934 journal bearings.
