China’s Comac has selected Crane Aerospace to provide the door signals system for its new C919 airliner. The system will monitor and communicate the position of the C919 fuselage doors, cargo doors and flight locks. It communicates the status of the doors and locks to other aircraft systems as well as too panels mounted on the doors.
Garuda Indonesia has ordered CFM International’s Leap-1A engines to power the airline’s 10 Airbus A320neo jets. The $220 million deal takes total business for the new Leap turbofan family to nearly 2,450 engines worth $29 billion at list prices. The Leap series will power three aircraft types: the A320neo (Leap-1A), Boeing 737 Max (Leap-1B) and Comac C919 (Leap-1C).
