The CR929 aircraft forms the joint aviation response of China and Russia against the Airbus A350 or Boeing 787 models. While the current sanctions against Russia have created some problems, the partners that produce the aircraft have redefined the process of producing and launching the aircraft without parts and components that could come from the West.
At the time of departure, the Chinese state group Comac and Russia's United Aircraft Corporation wanted to have their joint long-range jet CR929 ready for flight in 2021. However, in recent years, this period has been prolonged; Now the Western embargo on Russia has extended the delay. Therefore, the model is currently being redesigned and completed without any contribution from Western countries. For this reason, the first regular flight start date of the CR929 prototype will be postponed.
