Chinese airliner closer to commercialization

Chinese airliner closer to commercialization

Beijing, Oct 1 (Prensa Latina) An airliner developed by China is now closer to commercialization after obtaining the type certificate, which confirms the airworthiness requirements and prepares it to compete with Boeing and Airbus.

To the Aviation Industry Corporation, which is in charge of this project, the guarantee granted by the authorities of this sector means that the aircraft C919 also complies with environmental standards and can enter a market controlled by Boeing and Airbus.

However, this plane still has to be granted another two certificates: the production one indicating that the manufacture of the plane complies with national regulations; and the aircraft certificate, guaranteeing that it is safe to operate.

The C919 aircraft started to be developed in 2015. It made its inaugural flight two years after and successfully completed all tests on July 19, after delays due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic.

It will seek to compete with models such as the A320 of the French manufacturer Airbus and the Boeing 737 MAX of the United States; it has between 158 and 168 seats and will cover from 4,075 to 5,555 km.
