Aircraft components manufacturer to supply parts for COMAC's C919

US-based Honeywell International Inc is in the final stages of establishing three joint ventures with Chinese firms to supply aviation parts for the C919 - China's homemade narrow body commercial airplane - said its top executive.

Honeywell signed a $11.3-billion master contract last year with the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) to provide parts for the C919's flight system, which includes the auxiliary power unit, flight controls, and the wheel and brake systems.

The signing of the master contract was a prelude to the upcoming three joint ventures with Harbin Dongan Engine Corp Ltd, a subsidiary of Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), Hunan Boyun New Materials Co Ltd, and AVIC's Flight Automatic Control Research Institute.
