By April 5, 2018News, White Paper

Last night’s announcement of retaliatory Chinese tariffs was not altogether unexpected, but the scope surprised some.

Included in the list of 106 products were aircraft with an operating empty weight (OEW) between 15,000kg and 45,000kg. This action is particularly troubling given Aerospace’s historical insulation from tariffs targeting finished goods.
