South China Morning Post Excerpt
After stealth fighters and jumbo jets at Zhuhai Air Show, China’s ‘secret weapon’: jet engines
November 4, 2016

Beyond the roar of its new stealth jets and the buzz of plans to build commercial jumbos, China in the past week offered a quiet first peek at a key test of its drive to become a global aviation powerhouse - a giant state-owned aero engine maker.

In an unassuming pavilion the size of a large gym, tucked behind the main exhibition halls of the Airshow China expo that closes on Sunday, Aero Engine Corp of China (AECC) was on public display for the first time. Beijing launched the firm in August in a multibillion dollar mission to develop home-grown, high-tech products fit for export.

For all the grand vision, no new technology was on display at the 1,200 square metre pavilion. That was no surprise to Western industry experts: while China has so far grown more in scale and speed its in aviation drive than some expected, the proprietary commercial engines that are the pinnacle of aero development will take at least a decade to develop, they say.

“Designing an entire engine and designing the entire infrastructure around it so that you can develop it and maintain it, that is the big issue,” said Jorg Schluter, a senior engineering lecturer at Australia’s Deakin University.

The AECC’s presence at the show in Zhuhai, China’s biggest air expo, was far from discreet, with banners on the highway to the event site emblazoned with its blue and white logo. Still, an AECC official at the site told Reuters that the firm was not giving interviews nor holding events at AirShow China.

Engine mock-ups, gas turbines whose design dates back to 2002 and an interactive science exhibition offered little more than a rough sketch of a company with a nearly 100,000-strong workforce. Drawn together in a union of more than 20 engine companies, repair sites and institutes scattered around the country, AECC’s origins date back to the Mao era.

What the company has to its advantage, analysts concede, is cash and a fast-growing domestic airline market. The new firm was seeded with registered capital of 50 billion yuan ($7.40 billion) from the State Council, the Beijing government, as well as state-owned planemakers.

eijing’s efforts to transform state-owned businesses have reached into sectors such as steel and shipping. But it has no major presence in the commercial engine sector, dominated by General Electric, United Technologies’ Pratt & Whitney and Rolls-Royce.

“If you want to break into the world it’s a very difficult thing to do and the incumbents aren’t going to make it easy,” said Mark Daly, editor of IHS Jane’s Aero-Engines. China’s first home-built passenger jets, the ARJ-21 and C919, currently use foreign-made engines.

This bird is bigger! It's a cousin of Ilyushin IL-76. They even use the same Russian engines.

China to parade aviation prowess at November expo, but C919 jet a no-show
Excerpt

BEIJING (Reuters) - China will show off its growing military aviation strength at its biggest airshow in November, with fighter jet flypasts and its largest display of weaponry ever, an air force spokesman said on Thursday.

President Xi Jinping is overseeing a sweeping modernization of the armed forces in a bid to project power far from China’s shores and the 2016 airshow saw the first public unveiling of the Chengdu J-20 stealth fighter.

“The air force will further showcase its brand-new image at home and broad of ‘real battle, transitioning and strategic air force’” Shen Jinke told a news conference ahead of the biannual event, set for Nov. 6 to 11 in the southern city of Zhuhai.

Also going on display are China’s self-developed fighter training FTC-2000 aircraft, which it now exports, as well as a historically-high number of weapons, more than half making their first appearance at the show, he added.

The show is also an opportunity for China to show off its growing civil aviation capabilities as it strives to become an aircraft maker that can eventually rival Boeing (BA.N) and Airbus (AIR.PA).

However, state planemaker Commercial Aircraft Corp of China (COMAC) said its C919 single-aisle jet, which took its first flight in May last year, will not appear at the show. The company’s booth will display a model instead, as in prior years.

With Russian support, China broadcasts export ambitions at air show
Excerpt

ZHUHAI, China (Reuters) - China paraded industrial and military clout and sent deliberate signals to Western rivals that its aerospace and arms industries aim to catch them up on world markets, while playing down trade tensions at the nation’s largest air show this week.

The biennial event in the coastal city of Zhuhai has traditionally been used by Beijing to show off its growing aviation capability, but is also keenly watched by the global industry for clues on where it faces obstacles.

Beijing not only showed off a range of new military kit for export, but unveiled progress in civil wide-body and regional jet programs and deeper cooperation with Russia in a message to the West, industry watchers said.

“You get a real sense of the scale and speed of the development of the past 25 years. They have covered an enormous amount of ground in a really short space of time in terms of defense and aerospace,” said Douglas Barrie, senior fellow for military aerospace at the London-based IISS think-tank.

“Everything we have been shown here is pretty much for the export market. You then wonder what isn’t being shown; what are they keeping for themselves in terms of capability?”

On display in the sprawling ‘weaponry hall’ and on other stages to military visitors from Africa to Southeast Asia were ground vehicles, drones ranging from miniature to aircraft-sized and new anti-ship ballistic missiles.

China’s new J-20 stealth jet performed a five-minute-long demonstration - in contrast to a prudent 60-second debut two years ago - though the jet is not expected to be sold overseas.

“There is an interesting element of political signaling,” said Meia Nouwens, research fellow for Chinese defense policy at the IISS. “There is a lot of the great China dream and the role that the military play in that.”
