Rival chinesa da Boeing e Airbus entrega primeiro avião
December 9, 2022 -
A China Eastern Airlines foi a primeira companhia a receber o avião
de coxia única Comac C919, um marco nas ambições da China na
aviação, já que aposta em concorrer com a Airbus e Boeing.
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.
