China eyes more U.S. access for its aircraft, parts with new deal

Nov 02 , 2017

China’s aviation safety regulator said on Thursday that a recently signed agreement between the Asian nation and the United States to streamline aircraft certification would boost U.S. market access for Chinese-made planes and aircraft parts.

The Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) said in an e-mail to Reuters that an agreement it announced last month with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) would widen “mutual recognition” of each country’s aviation products.

It comes as Chinese planemaker Commercial Aircraft Corp of China Ltd (COMAC) [CMAFC.UL] seeks overseas certification for its homebuilt jets, the C919 and ARJ-21, in order to sell more planes abroad. Europe’s aviation safety regulator said in April that it was in the process of certifying the C919.
