الصين تسلم أول طائرة محلية

By Jordi Bou

December 9, 2022 - أصبحت “تشاينا ايسترن ايرلاينز” أول متلقٍ لطائرة كوماك C919 ذات الممر واحد، وهذه علامة فارقة في طموحات الطيران في الصين حيث تسعى للتنافس مع أيرباص وبوينغ.

While the C919 delivery is significant, the plane faces an uphill battle to challenge the European and American manufacturing duopoly. Airbus received one of its biggest orders ever from China over summer and Boeing planes are widely used in the country.

While a Chinese aircraft programme, the C919 relies heavily on Western technology, including for its engines – CFM International Leap-1Cs – as well as cockpit control and interior systems from Collins Aerospace.
