The Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC) announced on Oct. 13 that a prototype of its independently-developed C919 jumbo jets and ARJ21 regional aircraft will participate in the Eighth China International Aviation and Aerospace Exhibition or Air Show 2010, which is to be held in Zhuhai in mid-November. They will showcase the new development, achievements and breakthroughs made by China in regional aircraft and jumbo jets.

As one of the sponsors of the event, COMAC will unveil several achievements during the air show. First, a full-scale prototype of the C919 jumbo jet, which is China's first short and medium-range commercial trunk aircraft and has received much attention at home and abroad, will debut at the show.

Second, the ARJ21 regional aircraft, over which China has independent intellectual property rights, and the development of which has entered the airworthiness certification and certificate stage, will perform demonstration flights during the air show. This will be its first ever demonstration flight in a large international aviation show.

Meanwhile, COMAC will release a forecast report on the civil aviation market on the afternoon of Nov. 16, which is the first such report since its establishment. COMAC will also hold "China Jumbo Jet Night" on the same night.

COMAC's exhibition booth will be located in the southwestern part of the air show's No.1 Exhibition Hall and cover an area of about 1,500 square meters. The exhibits mainly include three 1:10 scale ARJ21 regional aircraft models, one 1:10 scale C919 jumbo jet model, one C919 jumbo jet prototype and one control cabin simulator.
