The assembly line for the landing gear of the C919 at Liebherr LAMC Aviation (Changsha) Co., Ltd. was built jointly by Liebherr and its partner LAMC based on the assembly facilities and testing equipment of Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH, Lindenberg (Germany), Liebherr’s center of competence for landing gear and flight control systems.

Arndt Schoenemann, Chairman of the Board of Directors of Liebherr LAMC Aviation (Changsha) stated: “The delivery of the first complete C919 landing gear system assembled in China by Liebherr LAMC Aviation (Changsha) Co., Ltd. to COMAC represents a further major milestone in the history of our Joint Venture. We are very happy to contribute together our experience and know-how to the success of the prestigious C919 program. It reflects an even more important step, because we are able to hand over the first system to our customer much earlier in the prototype phase of the C919 than originally planned.”

Liebherr LAMC Aviation (Changsha) will assemble the next C919 nose and main landing gears in Changsha. Step by step, the joint venture is taking over the direct procurement of the parts delivered by approved suppliers.

Liebherr-Aerospace Lindenberg GmbH had been selected by COMAC to develop, manufacture, qualify, certify and service the landing gear system of the C919 whereas its sister company, Liebherr-Aerospace Toulouse SAS, center of competence for air management systems, provides also a major system on board the C919, the integrated air management system.
