Alenia Aeronautica and Xian Aircraft Company (XAC) of China yesterday announced an agreement for the production of a section of the ATR turboprop’s rear fuselage section in China. XAC, part of the China aviation consortium AVIC I, will supply the piece, called Section 18, to Alenia for the ATR aircraft starting later this year. XAC, which has made Section 16 of the rear fuselage since 1997, will join the two pieces in China before sending it to Naples, Italy, for assembly with the rest of the fuselage.
