BEIJING - The domestically-developed jumbo jet C919, aircraft engines and other high-end aviation products will be highlighted at Aviation Expo China 2017 in Beijing from Sept. 19 to 22, the event organizer said Wednesday.
The expo will be held at China National Convention Center and is being jointly organized by Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (COMAC), Aero Engine Corporation of China (AECC) and China Promotion Ltd.
COMAC will display the Chinese-developed large passenger jet C919, new regional jet ARJ21, and a wide-body passenger jet, which will be jointly built by China and Russia.
The C919 achieved a successful maiden flight on May 5 this year, and has moved to the next phase of further testing and test flight missions, according to COMAC.
The wide-body passenger jet program is currently in the preparation phase of the proposal, after the joint venture China-Russia Commercial Aircraft International Co., Ltd (CRAIC) was set up on May 22 this year.
The newly-established AECC will display its achievements in aircraft engines, gas turbines, and graphene material and high precision aluminum alloy technologies, it said.
The AECC was set up in Beijing on Aug. 28, 2016 to accelerate independent research, development and manufacturing of aircraft engines and gas turbines.
Founded in 1984, China Aviation Expo was China's first professional aviation expo.
This year it has attracted more than 300 exhibitors from 14 countries and regions, with eight national pavilions, including Russia, Ukraine, Italy and Australia.
