About CYA


CYA Aviation was founded by Jason Zhao in 1995 and came to life with a desire to create the most innovative and need satisfying navigation equipment. Today, it’s a global brand that brings quality, accuracy, and reliability all together to users from various walks of life from around the world and helps them explore the world and realize dreams. CYA Aviation started out small but with an ambitious vision, and a team of talented and gifted individuals at the time when there were only a few manufactures for aviation and military navigation equipment but none from Asia. This motivated the founder to start the journey with a vision to bring the most innovative navigation tools, maintain the highest quality and accuracy standards and become a proud manufacturer from China in the global industry. 

With our dedication and hard work, we managed to live up to our vision throughout all these years and successfully collaborated with many of the prestigious organizations including the US Air Force; when we partnered with them to develop air navigation devices. And The Boeing Company; when we teamed up with them to produce need satisfying flight computers for their pilots. We strive to turn ideas into reality with precision and perfection by deeply understanding customer requirements, and develop tools from formative stages of an idea and design to finished products using only certified materials.

Our Vision goes beyond bringing the best for our global users. We have a deep desire to help all our users to explore more of the world and get to their dreams and destinations seamlessly. For that purpose, we make use of the latest technology and adopt advanced production methods to produce the most accurate navigation tools that allow users to begin their exploration journey smoothly and accurately. As a result of the continuous efforts of our dedicated team and massive R&D investments, in over 25 years we have successfully produced countless navigation instruments and registered numerous international patents, proving our ability to modernize our industry with simply exceptional flight navigation solutions.

Today, widely renowned as a Certified High-Tech Organization from China in the Global Flight Navigation Market and a leading brand within China, CYA firmly stays committed to exploring the future of civil and military navigation from its state-of-the-art innovation hub located at Asia’s financial center – Shanghai. And as we keep tracing ground-breaking business routes across the planet, we still believe that only the courage to transcend our physical and mental boundaries can lead us and our partners to increasingly valuable destinations, to lands of success that can be mapped and reached only with the right tools, only if you dare to fly high, to explore, to achieve.
