1-Feb-2010 12:01 PM

GE Aviation Systems CEO, Lorraine Bolsinger, stated Commercial Aircraft Corp of China’s (Comac) C919 and the Chinese market in general “represent extraordinary growth opportunities” for the company (Bloomberg, 01-Feb-2010). In Dec-2009, CFM International, a JV between GE and Safran, won a contract to power the C919 with its LEAP-X1C engine. Nexcelle, a JV between Safran’s Aircelle and GE’s Middle River Aircraft Systems, was also awarded a contract to develop engine nacelles and thrust reversers for the aircraft.
