Manufacturing – Airframe


The Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China Ltd (COMAC) or China Commercial Aircraft, was established in Shanghai in May-2008 to develop passenger aircraft with capacity of over 150 passengers to reduce the country's reliance on imports from Boeing and Airbus. COMAC’s shareholders include AVIC I and AVIC II, the Shanghai Municipal Government and the Chinese central government.

COMAC is marketing the ARJ21 developed by AVIC I, but is specifically engaged in the development of the 168-190 seat C919, which was expected to enter flight testing in 2014 and enter commercial service in 2017, but that timetable was pushed back to 2021. Both programmes are supported by Western aerospace companies including General Electric, Rockwell Collins, and Honeywell.
