Parker Aerospace supports COMAC and the first flight of the C919 aircraft

Parker Aerospace, a business segment of Parker Hannifin Corporation, is proud to support and celebrate the first flight of the C919 aircraft, the largest commercial passenger aircraft designed and built inside China.

Parker Aerospace is providing flight control actuation, hydraulics, fuel, and inerting on the new C919. Parker is providing the three independent hydraulic systems, the primary flight control system including the horizontal tail trim system, the fuel gauging and management system, fuel tank inerting system, and landing gear conveyance. A total of more than 60 types of components make up Parker's systems and subsystems on the C919. All have been conformity processed and safety-of-flight qualified prior to the aircraft's overall flight testing.

"Parker is committed to the aerospace market in China," said Mark Seidel, group vice president of strategic business integration at Parker Aerospace. "Along with our key joint venture partners AVIC NEIAS and AVIC FACRI, we are investing for the future success of programs like COMAC C919 and ARJ-21 as well as AVIC XAC's MA700 aircraft where Parker has large bills of material. Parker's joint ventures will support these and future aerospace programs in China for many years to come."

In further support of the aircraft, Parker has formed two joint ventures with the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC) in Nanjing and Xi'an. NEIAS Parker Aero Systems Equipment (NPASE), provides engineering, manufacturing, assembly, and testing for fuel supply and management, fuel tank inerting, and hydraulic power products and service for the C919, as well as the ARJ21 and MA700. The joint venture features a center-of-excellence machining center with a special processing shop.

Parker FACRI Actuation Systems in Xi'an provides engineering support, final assembly, and testing for flight control products for the C919, ARJ21, and MA700. The joint venture also features a FAA 145 and CAAC 145-certified maintenance, repair, and overhaul shop that services Parker Aerospace products, as well as those manufactured by other companies.
