Liebherr, LAMC JV Delivers First Chinese Assembled Landing Gear To Comac

Liebherr LAMC Aviation (Changsha), the joint venture between China’s LAMC (AVIC Landing Gear Advanced Manufacturing) and Germany’s Libherr-Aerospace has delivered its first Chinese-assembled landing gear for the ARJ21 to the aircraft’s manufacturer Comac.

The JV, established in 2012 for the Chinese aviation market, will assemble the next ARJ21 main landing gears at its facility in Changsa, taking responsibility for parts procurement.

The assembly line replicates another of Liebherr’s centre of excellence for landing gear and flight control systems in Lindenberg, Germany.

Arndt Schoenemann, chairman of the board of directors of Liebherr LAMC Aviation (Changsha), said the delivery of the first ARJ21 main landing gear assembled in China to COMAC represented “a major milestone in the history of the JV.”

The first ARJ21 entered into service in June with launch customer Chengdu Airlines, the domestic carrier subsidiary of Sichuan Airlines.
