China has made the important strategic decision to design and manufacture large aircraft. And, where possible, to design and build the component parts.
The radome structure is one of the components and is equipped with weather radar antenna. It is very high tech and to create one that passes all tests is no mean achievement. The product came successfully off the assembly line in six months marking a major step in the C919 project of developing a large passenger aircraft.
Pakistan Defence reports that China now has a radome professional production base. A major step forward.
