Comac C919

COMAC C919 Feature Request



Introduction

As Chinese Aviation is new to the industry, the company COMAC decided to step up and start constructing planes. The C919 was their second one after the ARJ21, which had the looks of a MD-80 series while this one looks like a copy of the Bombardier C Series A220-200.
