COMAC and CFM International celebrated delivery of the first LEAP-1C engine for the C919 prototype yesterday. The second Leap-1C engine is expected to be delivered to COMAC in August.
The first C919 prototype is in final assembly in Shanghai. The fuselage has been completed and mobile systems are being installed. But first flight had been postponed to 1H16. Deliveries are scheduled for 2018 but we anticipate slipping to closer to 2020.
