Sina Aviation News November 11, our self-developed next-generation short-range commercial trunk aircraft – C-919 airliner nose engineering prototype debut of 1:1, The advanced cockpit avionics systems for the domestic aviation enthusiasts marvel.
It is reported that China Commercial Aircraft Co. will carry a large C-919 aircraft participated in the eighth Zhuhai Air Show display prototype. By then, the audience at the Zhuhai Airshow China Commercial Aircraft exhibition, not only to see China’s first jumbo passenger aircraft appearance, but also through digital 3D flight simulator C-919 in-depth understanding of the performance.
C-919 aircraft is a large-scale production of a new generation of China’s own R & D lines in the short-range commercial aircraft, it is not only China among the international civil aviation industry prospects, but also on behalf of the International Civil Aviation of China manufacturing into the determination. Reported, C-919 jumbo jet is positioned as the world’s advanced level of the 150-seat twin-engine short-range narrow-body aircraft, which under the supercritical wing, engine and front wing hanging three retractable landing gear of the conventional layout, development series will cover the 130-200 range to meet the large and medium hub airports to the city airport, and flights between cities airport operational requirements.
According to ACAC introduction, the reason why China would choose to fly narrow-body aircraft as the breakthrough point, is to analyze the status quo at home and abroad after the civil aircraft market to make choices in the international civil aviation, 60% of the number of The A320 and Boeing 737 aircraft are such narrow-body aircraft, while the figure in the country as much as 70%, the future has 20,000 international aircraft at this level need to be replaced, while the domestic market will have 2300 or more narrow wait a successor body aircraft.
According to reports, C-919 airliner their existing skills with a strong competitive edge, with the same type of narrow-body aircraft, compared: by means of advanced aerodynamic design, C-919 aircraft resistance , high lift-drag ratio to 5%; including through the use of composite materials, including new aviation materials, weight 3%; resistance, light weight C-919 aircraft operating costs are 10% lower than similar aircraft, another C- 919 LEAP-X1C advanced engines than the previous generation engine emissions 12-15 percent, while fuel consumption than the active-duty engines by 15 percent.
present, China is steadily advancing to fly C-919 research and development of large aircraft project design, final assembly and integration, management and service and other aspects of the work. China Commercial Aircraft scheduled to be completed by 2010 C-919 aircraft preliminary design of large-scale, detailed design completed in 2012, first flight in 2014 and 2016 with the completion of the airworthiness certification and market.
