The first Chi­nese-made land­ing gear for the C919 pas­sen­ger air­craft has been de­liv­ered to the de­vel­oper, ac­cord­ing to the state-owned Avi­a­tion In­dus­try Corp. of China (AVIC).

The do­mes­ti­cally-made struc­tures un­der­went var­i­ous tests be­fore they were de­liv­ered on Septem­ber 19 by a Chi­nese-ger­man joint ven­ture to the Com­mer­cial Air­craft Corp. of China (COMAC), the de­vel­oper of C919, said AVIC.

They were made by Lieb­herr LAMC Avi­a­tion (Chang­sha) Co. Ltd., which fo­cuses on de­vel­op­ing land­ing gear sys­tems for the coun­try’s air­craft projects.

To date, the com­pany has cre­ated as­sem­bly and test lines for the C919 land­ing gear, a ma­jor step for­ward for the joint ven­ture to be­come a first-tier sup­plier of do­mes­tic pas­sen­ger air­craft. an auto in­dus­try clus­ter pro­mo­tion con­fer­ence on Septem­ber 20 at the bian­nual IAA Com­mer­cial Ve­hi­cles in the Ger­man city of Hanover. The con­fer­ence fo­cused on auto in­dus­try co­op­er­a­tion with Eu­ro­pean part­ners.

Xiangyang in cen­tral China’s Hubei Prov­ince is an im­por­tant gath­er­ing place for the au­to­mo­bile in­dus­try in China.

The city aims to es­tab­lish all­round and multi-level co­op­er­a­tion with Eu­ro­pean coun­tries rep­re­sented by Ger­many in the de­vel­op­ment of the au­to­mo­bile in­dus­try, said Xiangyang’s Deputy Mayor Zhang Xiao­fan.

Thomas Her­mann, Deputy Mayor of Hanover, wel­comed Chi­nese ex­hibitors and guests in his speech.

“It is of par­tic­u­lar im­por­tance for Hanover as a fair and car city to host the IAA and that Xiangyang could get in­spi­ra­tions here for its fu­ture de­vel­op­ment,” Her­mann said.
