What we know
Today at the Zhuhai Airshow in China, Russia and China just revealed a concept design that the two nations are working on. The aircraft, marketed as the CR929 is a long-range aircraft expected to make its maiden flight in 2023.
The aircraft looks strikingly similar to the Airbus A350 in both shape and design. The aircraft has a full LED screen cockpit and has a sidestick, rather than a yoke, again similar to Airbus Aircraft.
It’ll be quite interesting to see a brand new long-haul aircraft enter the market and compete alongside the giants with the likes of Airbus and Boeing. It’ll also be interesting to see which airlines decide to use this aircraft, and how it is welcomed to the market.
What do you think about this?
