US authorities want to ban the supply of aircraft engines for C919 airliners in China: “They can copy”


In China, the New York Times and the Wall Street Journal published in the US that the US administration was preparing to introduce restrictive measures against the Chinese aircraft industry was outraged. The materials of the American media, citing sources in the administration of President Trump, said that Washington intends to ban General Electric Corporation from exporting LEAP-1C aircraft engines to China.


The newspapers reported that the US administration fears that the technology of these aircraft power plants may be copied for further implementation by Chinese companies.

If the supply of these engines to China is blocked, then the program will endanger the civilian airliner C919, the start of full operation of which the Chinese company Comac has planned for 2021. C919 aircraft are assembled in China with LEAP-1C engines developed by GE and Safran. GE previously licensed Chinese manufacturers to operate these power plants on the latest airliners.

From material in the American media:

If the Chinese copy the technology for creating these aircraft engines, this will lead to huge financial losses for General Electric.

The Chinese media note that this is another intervention by US authorities in trade relations between companies.

Expert on aviation Wang Yanyan for the Global Times:

If the United States introduces this ban, the development of our civil aviation will slow down significantly. But even if the United States does not sell us an aircraft engine, this does not mean that our new aircraft will not have a suitable engine. It will be a matter of time. We will look for an alternative: in the UK, France, Russia. Ultimately, the US embargo will not make the United States a winner.

    and then the states raised a duty on European aircraft. Europeans are apparently also very pleased with such actions of the states in the field of competition.

        And at the same time, the Chinese, just in case, will copy aircraft engines for aircraft from manufacturers of other countries.
        I have no doubt about that.

          aircraft engines LEAP-1C

          China will purchase them through third parties, copy and arrange their release.

        Well, I do not. With our ALKs, moreover, already 15 years old, it does not grow together. Aircraft engine is primarily technology, not detail. You can find out the composition of the materials, but to learn how to produce it is another matter.

          Someone’s? AL-31 F1 is WS-10A / B, A is WS-15 and more RD-33 variants
          Yes, and on the J-20 are already their engines.
          And with the C919, I thought France was standing there, we need to check. And what can we offer them? PD-14, so it is also barely ready, the MS-21 is not yet in operation. And there is nothing else.
          PS: They bought Motor Sich, maybe there is something there. Neither Rolls Royce, nor Sneckma will be sold to them, the United States is tough on terms and conditions, and soon Maid in South Korea will buy electronics.

            Yes, the fact of the matter is that there is no more, but no less either. Everything is clear to everyone that talking about “copying” engines is complete nonsense. And who cares, because the goal is one - sanctions. And, as the example of SP-2 showed, the Americans are able to stop the same Europeans from delivering services / products to the sanctioned country.

            So, while the Chinese do not have their own engine, the only possible option if they do not want to be left without engines is PD14.

        Well, they will copy it — we have already passed it: we have a resource at stage 1 500 - the Chinese have 350: and then the resource is dialed proportionally, but with a lag: we have 4000 hours, the Chinese do not reach 1500

          They do not have a license for 31 (no one in their right mind would do this and would not go anywhere in the world). There they are trying to copy, but technology fails. On their copies, the resource is scanty.

            The same is not entirely true. Yes, just recently it was 300 overhaul hours against our 3000/4000, but it was brought up to 1500. And this is not the latest data. At Rafal he is 8000, this is what I remember from the numbers. So we are not far ahead of the rest. Rolls and Gee are definitely no less.
            They are two years old and that’s all ... Tanks haven’t been bought for a long time. They mastered everything.
            They have radars with AFAR, also for a long time.

                If you sell PD 14

                Yes, understand that there will not be 2000+, if only because the PD-14 is not flying yet. They are testing on IL-76, the second engine. This is the first civilian engine in Russia since 91. He has been tormented since 2008. China itself will soon be selling us engines.
                There is a Boeing, Airbus, Embraer ... now China. And we have SSJ for 52 percent of imports. Europe simply will not license it (PD-14), and the MS-21 will fly inside Russia on J7 flights. In the amount of 50 pieces in 10 years.
                In the heyday of the USSR, we had problems with licensing Tu-154, Yak-40, Il-86. X for all time released less than Boeing in one year. About a thousand Tu and less than a thousand Yak. And now a few pieces a year. And then transport.

        Planned your engine - CJ-1000AX.
        In total, more than 20 prototypes of such a motor will be created, the start of operation of which is planned after 2021.

        And unlike expert Wang Yanyan, Sohu says it is very optimistic -
        We can say that even if the Trump administration really orders to ban the export of engines, this will be a short-term pain for China, but it may be a long-term pain for the United States... I wish the C919 passenger aircraft to be equipped with a domestic engine as soon as possible

    If the Americans slow down this Comac for a while, the MS-21 will have at least some chance to advance on the foreign market. When the S919 goes on sale, not only the MS-21 will be sour, but also the Boeing and Airbus. First of all, because of the price, with similar har-x.

    It is necessary that the United States fry China with spurs and lashes as much as possible. So that they seriously realize that it’s impossible to simply copy from the USA. Then they will begin to interact more with other players and develop joint projects. It is clear that no one will offer them real projects besides Russia, and they themselves can develop as long as they like.
