中国商飞(Comac)凭借其三大基本项目登上全球商业航空舞台:ARJ21制造和维修的早期阶段、两架C919飞机的初步试飞,以及与俄罗斯一道为中俄国际商用飞机公司(CRAIC)的远程CR929客机甄选供应商。

Comac的产品系列中, C919单通道飞机与CR929宽体机之间存在很大差距,美国的竞争对手也存在同样的问题。中方虽未公开其第四个项目的计划,但Comac并不打算止步于这三种飞机的研发。

8月10日,一个来自Comac的航空工程师团队在上海对名为“V1+”的样机进行飞行测试,V1+采用了桁架支撑翼设计的商用飞机概念。样机与概念中全尺寸飞机的体积比为1:10,它在机尾和机翼下安装有四台电动发动机,机头下部呈鸭式布局设计。采用这种设计,是为了借助更加细长的由桁架结构(与机身相连)支撑的机翼,减少总体结构重量和所需推力,最终提高气动效率,而传统的悬臂翼则无法满足这个要求。
