CFM International (CFM) and AVIC Commercial Aircraft Engine Company (ACAE) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to establish a world-class final assembly line and engine test facility to support the LEAP-X1C engine selected to power the new COMAC C919 150-passenger aircraft scheduled to enter commercial service in 2016.

COMAC, which announced the LEAP-X1C engine as the sole western powerplant to launch the C919, forecasts a global market for more than 2,000 aircraft over 20 years.

ACAE and CFM have established a working team to evaluate the scope and feasibility of a LEAP-X1C final engine assembly and test facility in China. This same team will formulate the business plan and develop the legal structure and operating agreement for the proposed joint venture.
