How much influence does Boeing have on this project? Any cockpit commonality with other Boeing products?

That's a major order and a great boost from Sibir. I hope that 50 planes order will become official in the next few days.

The plane will not have any cockpit commonality with existing Boeing products, unless Boeing plans further involvement in the project which is quite unlikely.

Boeing is doing the project management....I believe that is their primarily, if only, function.

Yes Greg, that is right.

By the way, I just read today that a contract is yet to be signed.

Boeing can't help anybody build ARJ's in the USA? Currently, there are none produced within the US borders.

Very funny when the present American commercial aircraft production market is severely threatened by the Airbus Industrie conglomerate which is heavily subsidized by the British, German, Italian, and French governments.

Repeating the same old subsidy rubbish over and over again doesn't make it true. Read the other threads and get an education.

Boeing is working in partnership in Russia because it's a GLOBAL economy. There is demand there, and it'll earn Boeing revenues. The 'working together' strategy and Boeing project management excellence is just as saleable as an aircraft.

No RJs assembled in Wichita though BBD does all the flight testing there. Only the Lears are assembled in Wichita.

BTW, people should stop thinking along nationalistic lines as the Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier and Embraer all source their components globally. As was quoted in the press yesterday: "The A380 with GE/PW engines will have 50% American content, and the 7E7 will have 35% American content -- which is the American aircraft?"

Planemaker is right. Most parts for commercial aircraft of any type are manufactured around the globe, so the only thing that really ties them to a specific nation is the "top" manufacturer, the one who markets the plane - Boeing, Airbus, Bombardier and the like. As planes become increasingly sophisticated, construction of complex individual parts is best left to the professionals in that field - and those do not necessarily have to be from the same country. The ones offering best performance for the lowest price are awarded the contract - for money does not know borders, or colors, or nationalities.

Imagine just what would happen if say Boeing or Airbus started making their own engines instead of buying them from GE, CFM, P&W or RR. It would be doubtful if their airliners would even be able to get off the ground.  Smile



No plane, no gain.
