COMAC / UAC | C929

South China Morning Post Excerpt
China, Russia join the crowded sky: wide-body planes to cut reliance on Airbus, Boeing
China’s domestic aircraft maker Comac and Russia’s United Aircraft Corp unveiled the model of a twin-engine, wide-body plane at the Zhuhai Air Show
November 3, 2016

China’s state-run plane manufacturer said it’s in talks with Russia to develop and build a wide body commercial jet that can break the duopoly long held by Airbus and Boeing in civilian aircraft.

The Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, also called Comac, is in talks with Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) to produce a twin-aisle, long-haul commercial aircraft, said the Chinese company’s assistant president Guo BoZhi, during the Zhuhai Air Show this week.

The new aircraft, which doesn’t have a name, will be designed to compete in the same category as Airbus’ A-330 and A-350 models, as well as Boeing’s 777 and 787 models.

The Chinese aircraft will adopt advanced aerodynamic design and engines with low fuel burn to make them more efficient and more economical for airlines to operate, he said.

“We aim to make the direct operating cost of our new wide-body jet 10 per cent lower than our competitors,” Guo said.

A model of the proposed aircraft was unveiled in Zhuhai, displaying its logo with UAC’s name. The aircraft will come in three variants, with up to 280 seats in standard configuration, and a maximum range of 6,480 nautical miles (12,000 kilometres). The model may be named the C929 if Comac follows the 9X9 mnemonic tradition of its aircraft series.

China is one of the latest entrants in the competition to develop home made aircraft, eyeing the technological prestige and job creation associated with making planes.

Good looking plane
Нек с'исток сав затресе,
И нек ропске ланце стресе
Србадија Душанова!
