Meggitt congratulates COMAC on the C919’s maiden flight

Meggitt PLC congratulates the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) on the successful maiden flight of the C919, the first large civil jet aircraft independently developed in China.

‘We are very proud to be onboard,’ comments Peter Huber, Meggitt’s Group Director of Sales and Marketing. ‘And we are supporting the programme through consistent delivery to the high performance levels required.’

After a recent visit to COMAC in March, Meggitt Chief Operating Officer Tony Wood commented, ‘We are delighted to be supporting COMAC on both the C919 and ARJ21 programs. We look forward to continuing to develop our cooperation in the coming years.’

Meggitt has a successful long-standing business relationship with COMAC on both the C919 and their twin-engine regional jet, the ARJ21, supplying a range of technologies for braking systems, sensing and control systems, and advanced polymers and composites for both the airframe and engines.

A total of 570 orders for the C919 have been obtained from 23 customers.
