C919 plans to test-flight six aircraft


http://www.ecns.cn/cns-wire/2018/03-06/294752.shtml
(ECNS) -- C919, China's first home-developed large passenger plane, will undergo tests using six prototype aircraft, according to developer Commercial Aircraft Corp of China (COMAC).

"In order to ensure the aircraft's safety, we have to conduct a significant number of test flights to gain data to help determine the limits of its performance," said Wang Wei, chief engineer of the test flight center at COMAC.

The first C919, China's homegrown narrow-body jet, took off on its maiden flight at Pudong International Airport in Shanghai on May 5, 2017. In December, the second prototype completed a maiden flight in Shanghai, marking a milestone in its efforts to enter the global aviation market.

The six C919 planes are set to take off on different missions, Wang said. Testing of the first three will focus on performance, structure and maneuverability. The fourth plane will be tested on its avionics equipment and illumination functions. The fifth flight will test environmental control abilities and the sixth, its cabin system.

Based on China's two major test bases, Dongying in Shandong Province, and Yanliang in Shaanxi Province, COMAC will cooperate with companies such as the Aviation Industry Corporation of China to conduct intensive testing on the C919 in different places and at different times, Wang said.

To date, C919 has received 815 orders from 28 customers from home and abroad.

China's C919 project on track with two in flight tests
Excerpt

BEIJING, June 27 (Xinhua) -- China's C919 large passenger plane project is making steady progress, with two planes undergoing flight tests, according to the state-owned Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (COMAC).

The two C919 planes are undergoing flight tests and preparations in Xi'an and Shanghai, said COMAC.

The C919, China's first self-developed trunk jetliner, conducted its successful maiden flight on May 5, 2017, at Shanghai Pudong International Airport.

The first C919 plane received a series of modifications for its flight tests, including a water balance system modification and overall system calibration. The flight tests are being held in Yanliang, Xi'an of northwest China's Shaanxi Province.

The second C919 has completed multiple tests and modifications for its flight test missions. It is currently undergoing flight tests in Shanghai and will soon fly to the Dongying flight test base in east China's Shandong Province.

To date, the C919 project is on schedule, with flight tests, static tests and ground tests for follow-up planes in order, said COMAC.

The third C919 plane is in its final assembly phase, with its cables and airborne systems currently being installed.

By ZHU WENQIAN | chinadaily.com.cn | Updated: 2018-07-12 20:45

The second prototype of the C919 aircraft, China's first domestically produced narrow-body passenger jet, made its first long-distance test flight from Shanghai to Dongying, Shandong province, on Thursday, indicating that the C919 will start a period of intensive test flights at different testing bases simultaneously.

Commercial Aircraft Corp of China (COMAC), its manufacturer, said the C919 aircraft will enter a new stage of intensive test flights and research and development. The aircraft model will face the challenges of taking some highly risky test flights including those under complicated weather conditions.

The 102 prototype test aircraft of the C919 took off at 2:57 pm from Shanghai Pudong International Airport and flew for one hour and 46 minutes, before it landed at Shengli Airport in Dongying, and the aircraft will transfer to the testing base in Dongying to take various tests from now on, according to COMAC.

The 102 prototype test aircraft mainly does ground tests and flight tests covering areas such as the examination of the power system, fuel system, power supply system and environmental control system.

According to its plan, COMAC will put in six test aircraft to take test flights, including those during icy, high temperature and severely cold conditions. In addition, another two aircraft will only undergo ground tests, including static and fatigue tests.

According to WSJ, C919 saved General Electric's avionics unit.

Quote:
When China set out to build its first large commercial passenger jet in 2008, state-owned Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China made clear it would buy components only from joint ventures whose foreign partners would share technology. General Electric Co. agreed.

GE’s venture with state-owned Aviation Industry Corp. of China now is a main supplier of avionics for the domestic C919 aircraft. The joint venture helped GE avoid writing down a struggling avionics unit, according to former and current GE employees.

GE says “there was never a write down at our avionics business, nor was there risk of one.” It says, referring to intellectual property, that GE is “highly sensitive to the protection of our IP whether in our wholly-owned operations or in our” joint ventures.

So it’s all in the news. Apparently this jet was based on stolen tech. Will it be allowed to be sold to western carriers?

Well, their MD82-clone (ARJ21) was also based on the tooling & moulds from the real license-built ones at SAIC, so I wouldn't be suprised..

COMAC pushes back C919 jet’s China certification target to 2021
Excerpt

BEIJING, Aug 7 (Reuters) - Commercial Aircraft Corp of China (COMAC) aims to obtain Chinese certification for its C919 jet in 2021, the company said, marking a delay from a previous timetable for the jet which aims to challenge Airbus SE and Boeing planes.

State-owned China News Service first reported on Wednesday the latest certification target for the homegrown plane, citing a speech made by the chief designer Wu Guanghui for the C919 program at a recent industry event.

A COMAC spokesman confirmed the report to Reuters, but said the date was subject to regulatory approval and the aircraft’s safety remains a top priority.

In June last year, the company said it was aiming to obtain the certification by the end of 2020. Analysts had considered the target ambitious given the test planes have flown relatively few hours since the first C919 flew in 2017.

The deputy head of the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) Li Jian said in May that more flaws in aircraft design, manufacturing, airworthiness compliance and operational suitability were being identified, as work continued for certification of the jet.

Last week, the fourth prototype of the C919 plane completed its first test flight.

Meh. Same happened when they stole F-35 secrets to create their F-35 clone, except with 2 engines.

Somehow, Russia is unable to hack into US companies, despite Russian computer scientists being rather good at what they do.
