Lin-gang's civil aviation sector set to lift off
The scale of the civil aviation industry in the Lin-gang Special Area – located in East China's city of Shanghai – is predicted to reach 50 billion yuan ($7.75 billion) during the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-25), according to the area's civil aviation industry, which announced special plans on Sept 1.
The plans envisage that during the period, more than 100 civil aviation companies will move there, including three with an output value of 1 billion.
In terms of R&D of aircraft, Lin-gang will promote the serialized development of the ARJ21, the demonstration operation of the C919, the development of the CR929 wide-body airliner and the mass production of domestic mainline and regional aircraft.
In the field of aero engines, Lin-gang's research and development is projected to achieve success in commercial aero-engine technology and make key breakthroughs in the development of the series products from the Yangtze.
It is also seen establishing a relatively sound independent R&D system for commercial aero engines.
