In March 2012, Bombardier Inc. and Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China Ltd. (COMAC) signed a
definitive agreement covering program commonalities between the CSeries and C919 aircraft.
The four initiatives on which COMAC and Bombardier will be collaborating as part of this initial phase are commonality on: the cockpit humanmachine (crew) interfaces, the electrical system, the development of aluminum-lithium standards and specifications, and areas of customer services in terms of technical publications and co-location of teams. All four projects are expected to be completed by the end of 2012 and in conjunction with the C919 aircraft development schedule.
Both parties will continue exploring other possibilities for co-operation with regards to aircraft program commonalities, joint procurement, synergies in development and customer services, as well as collaboration on Bombardier and COMAC programs.
