Chinese passenger jet
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Comac C919 is a planned 168-190 seat narrow-body airliner to be built by the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (Comac).
It will be the largest commercial airliner designed and built in China since the defunct Shanghai Y-10. Its first flight is expected to take place in 2014, with deliveries scheduled for 2016. The C919 forms part of China’s long-term goal to break Airbus and Boeing‘s duopoly, and will compete against Airbus A320 family and the Boeing 737 Next Generation.
Construction of the nose section of the aircraft commenced on 2 September 2009.
