Trump authorized the sale of aircraft engines for COMAC C919 in China: version about the reason


Reports are coming from China that the American company General Electric has received permission from the US administration to export aircraft engines for the COMAC C919 passenger airliners to China. Recall that earlier in the White House they talked about reluctance to support such a deal, arguing that China could get the latest technology in the aircraft engine industry and use them in the future in their own interests.


For example, as the Trump administration noted, obtaining American engines will allow the Chinese to increase their level of competition with Boeing, especially considering the situation in which the Boeing 737 MAX finds itself after a number of identified shortcomings.

Now, it is reported that GE has received an export permit, after which it will be able to export its aircraft engines for the needs of Chinese aircraft manufacturing enterprises.

China is ready to purchase CFM LEAP-1C engines for its narrow-body passenger aircraft from an American company.

Now the US president has decided to "make concessions" and said he is not going to act to the detriment of American companies working for profit.

Trump:

I'm sure China will buy our aviation engines. After all, they are the best in the world. However, we do not sacrifice our national security. We will only benefit from this.

And in General Electric itself previously announced forced measures to reduce staff in connection with the crisis. According to US media, in the aviation business segment, in the field of maintenance and repair, the company is forced to lay off about 2,5 thousand employees within 3 months.

From this we can conclude about the reasons for authorizing the sale of aircraft engines. For Trump, such permission becomes a measure of a forced nature, because otherwise GE could have faced even greater problems, now the company will have a large Chinese order.

    In this situation, you don’t have to choose much, otherwise they will take to the streets and it doesn’t matter what vests they will be in.

      The choice is not great yes

        If it is important for China to get several engines for study with subsequent copying, then they may well buy the plane completely. Allegedly for exploitation. And they will disassemble and study. So Trump just turned on common sense.

          Having disassembled the engine, it is impossible to understand how its parts are made, and disassembling software is not at all what the original project with documentation is. Stop writing nonsense, the Chinese do not copy any engines.

            That is what Trump seems to be conveying to the congressmen who came up with the initial ban. In order not to fool around and not cover up their own producers the opportunity to earn.

              Everything is simple, like the corner of a house: they disrupted the sale of Motor Sich, they sold their engines. That's the whole Trump business. hi

      Come on, all his steps are well calculated and in this case the losses for the USA are minimal, others will suffer more, the same Russia, but there is a benefit for the USA.

        I hope these engines will also be at our disposal. Maybe we'll find something useful.

          The PW21G engines of the Canadian company Pratt & Whitney are supplied to our MC-1400 and I agree that I would like to receive and consider the new CFM LEAP-1C engine under a microscope ... it’s very good

            A good engine needs a specific glider. Otherwise, the planes will fall.

        hi
        That's right!
        No copying on modern aircraft engines, and other complex products will not work. Technology is needed. And they are based on an engineering school, the general technical level of industry. China is the leader in quantity, but key technologies in many areas are not yet available to it, or are available but not at all. wink
        But it becomes dependent on the supplier’s company with maintenance, repair, extension of service life, various kinds of certification, which is especially important for civil aviation.
        Here, a friend of mine recently resented: why, they say, there are so many IL-96, Putin, they can’t fly them all at all, and they even want to build the now unfashionable 4-engine airliners IL-96-400?
        But he is not aware that if suddenly sanctions for maintenance and repair of Boeings and Airbases appear, what will we get to Khabarovsk and Sakhalin?

          And now we imagine a situation where, for some reason, the United States imposes sanctions and prohibits both supplies and repairs, with technical support for these engines ... What will happen to this aircraft?

    These planes of different market segments and the Chinese will have to sweat a lot to move the Boeing and Airbus, but bury the sales of our MS-21 abroad or reduce them very much - yes. And by the way, not only him, but also our new PD-14 engine, which before that could be considered for installation on the C919

    Trump does business, and therefore goes to some personal costs in relation to China.

    When it comes, where does arrogance go? They will sell everything ... and at the same time will keep the release of Chinese aircraft for the most "painful" - for the engines. The situation will change, Boeing will rise, Chinese planes will become competitors to him - and the supply of engines will stop ... they will find an excuse. I hope the Chinese comrades understand this?

    Trump said: "The United States does not want to be a country with which it is impossible to do business ... Orders simply go somewhere else ... I want China to buy our aircraft engines, they are the best in the world,"

    The Chinese are certainly masters, but it is not so easy to copy technologies, otherwise one could buy any ready-made western plane with the same engine.

      Well, Leap is unique, probably really the best engine in the world in this segment, today. 70 years of evolution from GE and 50 years of evolution from Safran are invested in it. Alloy of European and American technologies.

      Copy it will be oh how difficult. Now, if production were transferred, even without a number of components, but with technical maps, then it is possible. But just products, it is doubtful that it will be copied in the foreseeable future.

    That's right, business, nothing more!
    The weak must leave, BUT, Trump is a cunning businessman, will find a way out for his manufacturers, companies, especially for such serious ones as Boeing. Let's see, in short.

      I think that CFM LEAP for China is a time bomb, a Trojan horse. Americans at any time can suspend the supply of engines under any pretext. I think that these steps were also negotiated with the Boeing, as no one is going to substitute America’s pride.

      An interesting mnogoghodovochka can turn out and in China for sure this option is viewed. The same MS-21 was insured, the Chinese are likely to roll out their S919 with an alternative engine too.

        The Chinese hope .... yes FIG knows what they hope ???
        Across the world, more than one or two of those hopeful will be typed!
        In short, the RAKE, to which they stood in line, now seems to have diminished!
        In short, we'll see.
