This news report was from last year when the C929 model was shown... Now I come back to read it, it have some interesting details...
- The article apparently try to calm readers by saying there are no generation gap between 929 and 350/787.. But consider it'll be another decade before its EIS, is this statement really calming?
- The article have lots of figures of unknown origin for the C929, including:
-- Fuelssage width: 5.9182m
-- Cabin width: 5.588m
-- length: 63.4
-- wingspan: 61
-- height: 18
-- distance between main landing gear: 11
-- distance between front and main landing gear: 27
-- typical capacity: 291 (two-class)
-- range: 12000km (payload 28.84t)
-- MTOW: 234
-- MLW: 190
- The article also mentioned that the C929 applied supercritical wing with a winglet similar to 350's scimitar winglet while different from 787, and the aerodynamic design of the wing design is better than A330 and of same generation as A350 and 787
- C929 planned to use up to 51% composite material with proportion for Aluminium alloy and Al-Li alloy reduced to ~20%
- It also mentioned a noteworthy design of C929 is the use of multi electric techonology like 787 which replaced APU and other energy source for sub system with electrical generator
- And for nartional variant of the engine, the article said:
-- First of all they will equip CJ1000-A (SF-A) engine onto C919 in 2022 with performance similar to CFM56
-- Then in 2026 they will put CJ1000-B (SF-B) onto extended range variant of C919, with similar performance to Leap-1C
-- Work on wide body engine CJ-2000 series is to be done in parallel with planned completion date for technology pre-research at 2020, test unit reach target at 2022, and 2025-2030 for certification.
--- And the CJ-2000 series base thrust level would be 75000lb with derated and uprated version ranging between 70000-82000 lb
