Russia's UAC To Team With China's Comac To Develop Widebody Aircraft
United Aircraft Corp.’s (UAC’s) CEO Mikhail Pogosyan says his company is “analyzing a possible partnership” to develop a widebody with Chinese aircraft manufacturer Comac.
Speaking at the Farnborough air show, the head of the Russian aerospace conglomerate said, “We are thinking of critical technologies that we need to have for such an aircraft.”
China has tentative plans to develop a new widebody, dubbed the C929. But there appears to be no fixed timeline for development or launch, given that Comac is busy developing the C919 narrowbody.
