Russian-Chinese aircraft - CR 929



Quote:
Russia's United Aircraft has revealed that the new widebody aircraft it will make in conjunction with China's Comac will be called the CR 929 and feature three variants.

The CR 929-600 will be the baseline version of the aircraft, says UAC. There will also be a "junior version" designed the CR 929-500, and a "senior version" designated CR 929-700.

The -600 will have passenger capacity of 280 seats in a three class configuration with a range of 12,000km.

A shorter -500 will carry 250 passengers in three-classes, but with a range of 14,000km.

The longest variant of the CR 929, the 929-700, will have passenger capacity of 320 in a three class layout, and a range of 10,000km.

UAC says that the 'CR' denotes China and Russia's joint involvement in the programme. President of the Russian planemaker, Yuri Slusar, addsthat the number '9' in the designation denotes the symbol of eternity in Chinese culture.
"The CR 929 name for the family makes it possible to propose it together with the Chinese narrow-body jet С919, whereas the numbering of each family member continues the numbering of airliners available in UAC’s commercial aircraft portfolio – from MS-21-200/300/400 to CR 929 – 500/600/700,” he says.

Officials from the two companies made the announcement at Comac's headquarters in Shanghai.

Chinese and Russian officials have discussed the programme for some years, and in May set up a joint venture company called China-Russia Commercial Aircraft Corporation (CRAIC) to develop the new aircraft.

CRAIC is based in Shanghai and will oversee all aspects of the programme, including technology development, manufacturing, marketing, sales, customer services, and programme management. In Moscow, UAC will host a joint design centre.
The aircraft's composite wings and empennage will be produced in Russia, while Comac will produce the fuselage and perform final assembly in Shanghai. Russia will also produce the tail section.

During a briefing at the Paris air show, UAC showed a chart indicating that approval of concept for the widebody should take place in 2017, followed by early configuration and preliminary design in 2018.

Design documentation is slated for 2021, followed by first flight in 2023, before the aircraft enters service two years later.

Initially, the aircraft will be powered by an engine from one of the major Western engine makers, such as Rolls-Royce or General Electric.

An indigenous power plant will also be developed. Russia's United Engine Corporation and China's commercial aircraft engine firm AECC recently signed a preliminary agreement on developing an engine to power the CR 929 family.

Under the proposed schedule the engine would commence testing in 2022 and secure certification in 2027.

Tail and wingtips do look like the A350 as well.

It looks very much like an airplane! They also made wings, fuselage, chassis and keel)).

CR 929 program passes critical design review

The Board of Directors of China-Russia Commercial Aircraft International Corporation (CRAIC), the joint venture between Russia’s United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) and China’s COMAC, has approved the critical design review (CDR) of the widebody long-haul airliner family dubbed CR 929, to be designed jointly by the two countries. UAC confirms that the program has passed the Gate 2 milestone and is now moving into the next development phase.

The board also approved the associated organizational structure and regulatory documents, including CRAIC’s statute and budget. The company was registered in China in late March 2017, and was inaugurated by the Chinese and Russian partners in Shanghai in May.

The next stage, to begin in 2018 and continue until mid-2019, will involve defining the design and selecting system and equipment suppliers. The current completion deadline is slightly behind the initial schedule, which called for Q4 2018 or Q1 2019.

A UAC source revealed that CRAIC is taking full control of the program starting from 2018, just as planned earlier. This year, the effort has been jointly managed by working groups within the UAC and COMAC.

Does anyone know about new aircraft? Which airlines who has already orders CR-929? When they will be at final assembly, rollout date, and a few other things, as well.

In 2019, the first firm contracts are expected to be concluded. The first flight should take place no later than 2022. Deliveries of serial aircraft to customers will begin in 10-12 years after the launch of the project, approximately in 2026-27. The whole program is designed to 2045. The price of the is $ 113.5-117.8 million, in the first year it should be 20% cheaper than competitors
