C919 Rises to Challenge
国产C919崛起,挑战波音空客

At the Zhuhai Airshow, which ended on November 20, state-backed Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (中国商用飞机有限公司,COMAC) said it won 50 orders for the planned 168-seat C919 plane (C919大型客机), bringing the total to 380.
于11月20日结束的珠海航空秀上,由国家支持的中国商用飞机有限公司(简称COMAC)称其预计拥有168个座位的C919大型客机获得50架订单,至此其订单总数达到380架。

China’s rapid economic growth is creating massive demand for planes as growing incomes boost air travel, with U.S. aviation giant Boeing (波音公司) estimating the country will need 5,260 commercial jets over the next 20 years.
中国迅速的经济增长为客机创造了极大的需求,因为不断增长的国民收入促进了航空旅行。美国波音公司估计,在未来的20年,中国将需要5260架商用喷气式飞机。

But China wants a piece of that giant market as it tries to develop its own technology and then look overseas for sales. The C919 plane is expected to compete with Boeing’s 737 and the A320 of Airbus (空中客车), but catching up might take at least a decade, industry analysts said.
中国想要在这巨大的市场中分一杯羹,而且还在尝试研发自己的技术,拓展海外的销售量。C919客机有望成为波音737和空客A320的有力竞争者,但是业内专家预计要赶上波音737和空客A320可能最少需要10年时间。

“The goal of the Chinese is to be in a few years at the same level as different parties around the world—of course Airbus and Boeing,” said David Lopez Grange, general director of Spanish aeronautics (航空学) firm Aritex. “Maybe it’s not a long time—10 years. China will be a very important player in the world in a few years,” he said.
西班牙航空公司Aritex总裁大卫·洛佩兹·格兰其表示,中国人的目标是在几年内,在世界各地的航空公司,尤其是空客和播音公司并驾齐驱。他说:“这个目标或许不久后,可能10年,就能实现。”中国将在几年中成为世界航空事业的一个重要的参与者。

Currently, C919 still relies on foreign technology for key parts of the project, including the engines, to be supplied by French-American venture CFM International (CFM国际). The project provides a chance for China to obtain certain technology through cooperation with foreign countries, so as to advance its own aviation manufacturing.
目前,C919工程的主要部分仍依赖于国外技术,其中包括由法国和美国合资的CFM国际提供的引擎。通过与国外公司合作工程,为中国提供了一个可以掌握一定技术的机会,以推进自身航空制造业。

As COMAC develops the C919, it is also building a smaller regional jet which seats 78 to 90 passengers. The company said earlier this month that it would assemble 50 regional jets annually by 2014, and is targeting annual production of 150 of the larger C919 planes by 2020.
当中国商用飞机有限公司开发C919的同时也正在建造一架较小的可容纳78至90名乘客的支线喷气飞机。本月初公司称,到2014年,每年将组装50架支线喷气飞机,而到2020年的目标是每年生产150架更大的C919飞机。

Some potential buyers are waiting, including Chinese budget carrier Spring Airlines (春秋航空), which is a devoted customer of the Airbus A320. The latest orders were booked by two Chinese carriers: Joy Air (幸福航空) and two-year-old Hebei Airlines (河北航空). A foreign company, GE Capital Aviation Services (通用电气资本航空服务), also ordered 10.
一些潜在买家,包括空客A320的忠实客户中国廉价航空公司春秋航空都在等待。而最先下单的是中国的两家航空公司:幸福航空和已开业2年的河北航空。一家国外公司,通用电气资本航空服务也订了10架飞机。
