China's first passenger passenger narrow-body aircraft, the 919, will be delivered to the customer by 2021, reports TASS Statement by the Deputy General Director and Chief Designer of China Commercial Corporation aviation (COMAC) Guanghui.




The design and testing of the aircraft to obtain a license will last about another three to four years. The first finished aircraft will be transferred to China Eastern Airlines by 2021,
said guanghui.

In February, the company announced that "the total order book for С919 increased to 815 aircraft, among the customers - 28 of Chinese and foreign companies."

The development of the C919 airliner corporation has been dealing with 2008 of the year. The first prototype was released in the 2015 year. In May, the 2017-th aircraft first flew into the Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

Currently, two samples are already undergoing flight tests for obtaining a license for commercial operation.

“The C919 can be produced in several versions with different numbers of seats (from 158 to 190). The average flight distance will be about 4075 km, the maximum - 5000 km. He can fly at altitudes up to 12,1 thousand meters, ”said the manufacturers.

According to them, at this stage, the aircraft is equipped with the “LEAP-1C propulsion system of CFM International, a joint venture of the American General Electric and the French Safran”. The same engines are on some aircraft Boeing and Airbus.

Earlier, COMAC announced plans in the future to equip C919 engines of its own production. According to experts, the liner will be on a par with Boeing 737 and A320.

The Chinese leadership hopes that C919 will help reduce the country's dependence on foreign manufacturers.

    This is all great, but what is there about Chinese except the fuselage? We, under MS, have at least done our own engine. Yes, and its own avionics. Just don’t tell me about plans. They are not able to create a modern competitive engine. Well, no way.

        And because they are blinding, the huge domestic market and the lack of complexes in terms of state protectionism will do their job. And about their engines, there will be no doubt that time will pass and the floor of the world will still buy them. As part of the Chinese mobile phones, they also laughed five years ago, and today they are "going" to grab)), the same picture is in terms of armament - we are catching up with export, etc., etc ...

        And what to look at them? Terms are about the same as our MS-21. Also a series from 2019, the first flight last year. But again, the MS-21 will be very Russian. Not all of course, for foreign customers it will be with Amer’s engines, but for themselves there will be a high degree of localization. And this month a second plane is supposed to take off.

          there was such a writer Hemingway, he said the phrase: For many years, many Americans have touted Mussolini for making Italian trains go on schedule. It never occurred to them that a regular rail service in America was established without fascism.
          I led his statement to the fact that you do not think that there are methods that can reduce corruption even without executions. Of course it is longer, but more effective!
          https://m.lenta.ru/articles/2016/02/09/anticor/am
          p / [b] How often are they shot?
          And here the fun begins. According to Chinese law, the death penalty can be carried out immediately, and can be delayed for up to two years. As a rule, a delay is given for economic items. Moreover, if the offender did not commit any “intentional crimes” during this time and generally behaved approximately, the death penalty can be replaced by life imprisonment.
          So, not one of the high-ranking “tigers” convicted under the anti-corruption campaign of Xi Jinping was put up against the wall. Moreover, the most resonant “victims of the campaign”, members of the so-called “New Gang of Four,” Zhou Yongkang and Bo Xilai, received only life sentences without any hint of execution.
          On average, corrupt officials are imprisoned for 12-16 years. In other words, the idea that officials are being shot in batches in China is just a myth.

      We perfectly see what trend the relations between the USA and China are gaining. It will only get worse, the United States will be forced to drag back to its territory of production and technology. And if they only feel the competition from the Chinese, Boeing will immediately stop supplying their components and will force the French. On this, I'm afraid the Chinese plane will end.
      I am interested in something else, almost all chassis racks and other titanium products from the same USA are supplied by us. Do the Chinese buy the same from us?

    I remember about 5 years ago it was not flattering to speak about the Chinese auto industry, 10 years ago in general, say that Chinese cars are like plastic toys. Now, many major global automakers have a full production cycle of their branded cars in China. Ours, with all their wishes, will not be able to raise industry this way, because in the government there are only suckers, which only know how to suck oil and gas and sell. They haven’t wanted to create something creative for a long time, but what is still kept remains from the Soviet era and moves along the thumb

      Well, now the engine is also not mine. And again, a certificate earlier than 22-23 is unlikely to be received by EASA.

      Well, I’m grieving you a little, the MS-21 has only one Honeywell HGT750 APU so far - exactly the same as the C919 by the way laughing . Aerosila is still asking for money, and then certification again (that is, not the fact that it will be planned for certification in Russia by 20 year).

      IntuVue RDR4000 3D radar - it’s not possible to replace the import at all, or rather, although it’s not possible to build it, but EASA will send 5-10 for years to certify. The lobbyists there hold the market tight.

      There is still a rampart of foreign komplektuhi. Thales calculators (same as on 320 Neo), an innovative control system is also American.

      If anything - even the most important feature of the project is Austrian:
      FACC AG (a composite giant that glues watermelons too) made a black wing for the MS-21. But with technology transfer. The series may already have its own material and its 100% production.

      Explain popularly. The thing is. that in Russia there is, on the basis of the participation of the USSR, the entire production cycle - it is universities, design bureaus, to research institutes and testing centers. And most importantly, there are frames! And every year a bunch of engine engineers, materials scientists, chemists and other engineers graduate from Moscow cool universities. Where is all this? And I’ll tell you, nothing will happen to our government. Only taxes will increase, utilities and ticket prices.

    We harnessed for a very long time, and the neighbors had already gone. All because of the engines. There are no declared parameters on PD 14 and with PW1400G we are not competitors. The same story with engines for SU 57. Another 2-3 years and MS 21 will no longer be needed. recourse

      Can you share the numbers? Or read a bunch on the Internet and we dumped it here? What does it mean "there are no declared parameters on PD 14"? Where did you get the information. Share it.

        According to PD-14, there is no information about problems, but certification is definitely ahead, and this is not a quick process. EASA planned to serve in 19, but most likely they will move to 20. This means that real deliveries of PD-14 will be impossible until 22-23 in the EASA jurisdiction (roughly speaking, any export, except perhaps Cuba, North Korea, Syria and Iran, but the latter has already bought up all the money with the Watermelons, and the remainder has been poured into 80 Boeings, which quite real freeze).

          For domestic flights, a temporary certificate (or other solution) could be provided. But why is it top? It’s easier and more profitable to get kickbacks for Boeing and Airbuses.

    And after all, a huge domestic market

    That's right!
    Sooner or later, with one degree or another degree of localization, this will happen.
    We also need to understand that if our planes are even slightly better and cheaper than Boeings, Airbases and the Chinese adjacent to them, they simply will not be allowed to sell them on a global market on a global scale.
    What to do, what to do ?! Yes, first of all, do not rely on export, but focus on the domestic market, make air transportation more accessible (at least due to cheaper kerosene in the oil producing country).
    Then, abroad, there will be a certain demand for our civilian aircraft.

      And what do we have - our small market? But something is not heard about him, all about export. Our problems are not interesting for this.

      If the size of our domestic market would be large, look at the GDP figures, which are smaller than Germany. And besides, in order to sell planes abroad (preferably to rich countries because there is more demand), you need to have good relations with them. And under today's conditions, this is very problematic.

    That's what it means when a global elite feeds a country. And orders for a thousand and all on the ointment "suddenly." For the Chinese, artificially there is no competition and zero podkoverovyh barriers. It still barely flew and it’s already the turn. Smacks of tesla

    I don’t find anything surprising in the fact that China produces modern aircraft. Here I have other information that interests how reliable this aircraft is in operation, it doesn’t work out like in the auto industry in China.

    For airlines, the presence on this plane, western engines and avionics is a huge plus. There will be no problems with logistics and repairs. Given that the suppliers are engaged in Boeing and Airbus. Again, most of the a / c have a mixed fleet. In which there is A and B. It is not necessary to develop new connections.
    Well and most importantly: these engines are the most reliable and modern. Brought to mind.
    MC-21, not a competitor. Namely, due to the fact that avionics and engines are Russian on it.
    By the way, this is one of the reasons why the fate of the Superjet is more successful than the An-148. The case, not only in Poghosyan.
