Ryanair CEO Details Chinese, Stansted Interests
(ATW Daily News/WCARN.com, Aug. 7)

Quote:
Ryanair (FR) says Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (COMAC) is looking at potential modifications that the Irish low-cost carrier (LCC) would like to see in the C919 single-aisle jet. The LCC has been in talks with COMAC for some time over the possibility of ordering the 180-seat twinjet, although it would have to be stretched slightly to hit FR's sweet spot of a 199-seat airliner.

The Irish carrier operates solely Boeing 737s. The C919 is due to enter service toward the end of the decade. "We continue to work with the Chinese, even though it's a long-term thing," FR deputy CEO and CFO Howard Millar said in London.

"We find them very interesting and they're willing to listen to what we want. For example, we asked whether they could make the aircraft's doorways wider so two people could walk through them simultaneously, to help with our turnaround times. They're looking into that."

COMAC of China, Boeing Open Energy Conservation Technology Center
(WCARN.com/Boeing PR, Aug. 16)

Quote:
Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (COMAC) and Boeing today opened the Boeing-COMAC Aviation Energy Conservation and Emissions Reductions Technology Center, a collaborative effort to support commercial aviation industry growth. The two companies also announced that the Boeing-COMAC Technology Center's first research project will explore opportunities to refine waste cooking oil, often described in China as "gutter oil," into sustainable aviation biofuel.

The events today furthered the collaboration agreement announced in March between COMAC, which is building the new C919 jet and ARJ21 regional jet, and Boeing, which this year celebrates its 40th anniversary of providing commercial aircraft and services to China's aviation industry. Funded by both companies, the Boeing-COMAC Technology Center is working with China-based universities and research institutions to expand knowledge in areas such as sustainable aviation biofuels and air traffic management that improve commercial aviation's efficiency and reduce carbon emissions. It is located in COMAC's new Beijing Aeronautical Science and Technology Research Institute (BASTRI).

"Energy conservation emission reduction has currently become the hotspot and focus of the global aviation sector, and our collaboration with Boeing in this regard will have profound impacts in China as well as the world," said Shi Jianzhong, vice president of COMAC. "Meanwhile, we wish to construct the new center as a demonstrative advanced technology center and to make contributions to the development of the aviation industry in China and world with the concerted efforts of both sides."

China-Made C919 Jet to Launch in 2014
(China.org.cn/WCARN.com, Sept. 17)

Quote:
The preliminary design of the China-made passenger aircraft C919 has been completed, and the plane has now entered the stage of detailed design. Its first flight is expected for 2014, Beijing News reported on Monday.

The C919, to which China fully owns intellectual property rights, is a medium- to short-range commercial trunk liner. The basic version of the aircraft is designed to cover a range of 4,075 kilometers, while the enhanced version can stretch to 5,555 kilometers. Its maximum take-off weight is 72.5 tons, with a designed lifespan of 90,000 flight hours or 30 calendar years.

In the past six years, thousands of professionals from China and abroad have contributed to the initial design. "Now it's time for a final sprint," said Li Xianping, C919's deputy chief designer. "We have to make sure that the plane is more advanced than the products of our opponents before it enters the market," Li added.

China's COMAC gets 50 more new orders for C919

BEIJING, Nov. 14 (Xinhuanet) -- The Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, or COMAC, a would-be rival to Airbus and Boeing, inked deals with four clients on Tuesday to sell 50 of its C919 jetliners.

The deal brings the total orders of China’s home grown commercial jetliner to 380. COMAC says it expects the first batch of the aircraft to be delivered in 2016.

Reporter: "The single-aisle aircraft is designed by Comac to rival against other commercial passenger jet. The short and medium range jet is to carry around 168 passengers."

The Shanghai-based state-owned aircraft manufacturer sold 20 C919 passenger aircrafts to two Chinese airlines each and 10 jetliners to a unit of the US electric giant GE.

Tian Min, CFO of COMAC, said, "We received orders for 50 C919 jetliners. It’s a certain sign of market recognition for our aircrafts. In the first batch, we got orders for 100 C919 aircrafts from back in the year of 2010. And most of our clients back then were big airlines such as AirChina, China Eastern, and China Southern airlines. But right now, more and more small airlines are taking interest in our products."

COMAC says it expects its first C919 aircraft to be completed in 2014, while it aims to start the aircrafts delivery in 2016.

GE Capital Aviation Services, COMAC’s only foreign client so far, had ordered 10 C919 aircrafts previously. In total, it has ordered 20 C919 jetliners.

Liu Li, CEO of GE Capital Aviation Services, China, said, "We’re confident about the aircraft. And it’s normal in the industry to order aircrafts without seeing the real model."

The new model certainly attracts lots of airlines from home and abroad. But apparently for international giant Airbus, C919 has not yet threatened Airbus’ market share.

Laurence Barron, president of Airbus China, said, "Airbus is not afraid of competition. Competition is always good for the industry. And we thrived from competition."

China earlier unveiled it wants to develop domestic aircraft manufacturers as a strategic priority.

But few home grown aircraft makers were so far able to threaten the market shares of aircraft makers such as Boeing, Airbus or Bombardier.

Considering the low level of activities for this thread maybe it should be merged with http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showth...ighlight=arj21

And the thread title should be changed to:

The market for narrowbody short to medium-haul jets in the class of the A320 and B737 is way bigger. Even the A320NEO and B737MAX won't have bigger windows or electronic window shades. It's a mere gimmick, really.

Vrooms was talking about the cockpit windows, which do look big but probably aren't bigger then the average widebody plane cockpit windows.

'Iron Bird' set for new test phaseUpdated: 2013-12-30 12:18
By Wang Wen in Shanghai ( chinadaily.com.cn) Comments Print Mail Large Medium SmallThe C919 entered a new phase on Monday after the large passenger aircraft project successfully completed flight control hydraulic system tests.

The completion of these tests means that project is now ready for comprehensive systems tests on its airframe "test bench".
According to COMAC's plan, the C919 will take its first flight in 2015 and the first aircraft used for test flights will be assembled next year.

"It is a milestone for the C919," said Guo Bozhi, head of Shanghai Aircraft Design and Research Institution, a subsidiary of Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China Ltd (COMAC).

Three main systems, flight control, hydraulic and chassis, are now set for vigorous testing, he said. It took four years to build up the test bench for the "Iron Bird" as the C919 is often called.

The test bench has an airframe, wings and empennage (tail) to simulate systems operation

China to gain 5,357 civil aircraft by 2032: COMACUpdated: 2013-09-26 08:41
( Xinhua) Comments Print Mail Large Medium SmallBEIJING - China is expected to gain 5,357 civil aircraft of over 50 seats by 2032, according to a report released by the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) in Beijing Wednesday.

The newly increased fleet is valued at around 647 billion U.S dollars, or about four trillion yuan based on 2013 list prices, according to COMAC's fourth annual forecast report on China's civil aircraft market.

COMAC, the manufacturers of the C919, China's first homegrown large passenger aircraft, released the report at the ongoing air show in Beijing, which lasts from September 25 to 28.

To meet booming civil aviation demand, China's civil aviation fleet size is expected to reach 6,494 by 2032, said the report.

China is embracing an era of mass aviation with accelerating air transport growth, thanks to the country's efforts and investment in aviation infrastructure construction.

In the 2001-2012 period, the country saw passenger traffic volume grow 3.6 times, higher than that of railway and highway traffic volume.

In 2012, China's civil aviation handled about 319 million trips, a 9.2 percent year-on-year increase.

By 2032, the volume of passenger traffic is expected to account for 16 percent of the world's total, approaching the scale of the North America region, said the report.

The first testing platform for China's first jumbo jet meant to compete against Airbus A320, Boeing 737 and Russian MS-21 started operating in Shanghai on Monday morning, marking a milestone for China's aviation program.

The platform named "iron bird," a plane-like fuselage simulator, will mainly test the flying controls, hydraulic pressure and undercarriage systems of the C919 jet.

The C919 is due to make its first flight in 2014 and enter service a year later. It is the largest commercial airliner designed and built in China since the Shanghai Y-10, which was designed in the 1970s.

The 150-seat Chinese-made aircraft has won 330 orders from carriers from both home and abroad.

The assembly center in Shanghai will be able to deliver the first C919 aircraft, with a flight range of 4,075 kilometers, in 2015, the Commercial Aircraft Corp of China said.

China is investing 200 billion yuan in developing its domestic jumbo jet.
