Chengfei Commercial Aircraft Company (CCAC) has delivered a batch of key aircraft components on Friday: rudders made in Chengdu, capital of Southwest China's Sichuan province, for Boeing's new 737 MAX and 787-10 Dreamliner.

CCAC is a subsidiary of the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), the country's largest State-owned aircraft producer.

"Boeing is proud to join AVIC and CCAC to celebrate another exciting milestone in the growing relationship among our companies. The delivery of rudders is for not just one but two of Boeing's airplane development programs," said Ian Chang, Boeing Commercial Airplanes vice-president of supply management in China.

"We are proud to work with AVIC companies, including CCAC, to meet Boeing's requirements for high quality, affordability and on-time delivery while expanding China's aviation manufacturing capabilities."

The 737 MAX which is a more fuel-efficient version of the best-selling 737 family will be delivered to customers starting in 2017 while 787-10 Dreamliner, the largest member of the technologically advanced 787 family, will be delivered to customers starting in 2018.

Boeing is the largest international customer for China's aviation manufacturing industry. Chinese suppliers produce components and assemblies for all five Boeing Commercial Airplanes programs, and more than 9,000 Boeing aircraft are flying with components and parts made in China.

As a Boeing supplier, CCAC produces rudders for the entire 787 family, and the rudder and other components for the 737.

AVIC deputy general manager Geng Ruguang said that AVIC attaches great importance to its partnership with Boeing and will continue to improve innovation and research and development capabilities, enhance competitiveness, and deepen cooperation with Boeing to achieve mutual benefits and meet customer needs.
