The Nanchang CJ-5 was manufactured at the Nanchang Aircraft Factory (China) from 1954 – 1958. The original design showed deficiencies for jet pilot training. As such, a number of modifications were made, including adding a retractable undercarriage and revising the wings to have prominent dihedral. More modifications were made and in 1961 the CJ-6A (the Warbird Air Adventures model) was approved. Mainstream production commenced the following year.

This model features a 285hp Quzhou Huosai HS6A engine, giving maximum power. An armed version was produced from 1964-1966 featuring a 300-hp HS-6D engine. In total, more than 1800 of these planes were produced and exported around the world to places including Albania, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Tanzania and Zambia. Production of the CJ-6A ceased in June 2011, replaced with the updated CJ-7 available only to the military.
