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

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."

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.
