(Yicai Global) March 26 -- A unit of China's Haite High-tech will develop CNY9.3 million (USD1.3 million) worth of flight simulation software for China's first domestically developed regional jetliners.
ACCEL Tianjin Flight Simulation, a joint venture between Haite and Florida-based Collins Aerospace, has won a tender to create training technologies for Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China's ARJ21 series, the Sichuan province-based supplier said in a statement yesterday.
Last December, ACCEL's first Airbus A320 full-flight simulator got certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China. In June 2017, ACCEL was also the first Chinese firm to reach the highest qualification level of D with its domestically produced simulators.
COMAC's self-developed ARJ21 can transport between 78 and 90 passengers over distances from 2,225 to 3,700 kilometers and is capable of operating at all of China's regular plateau airports and most of its high plateau airports.
Haite's stock price [SHE: 002023] climbed 0.8 percent to CNY15.56 (USD2.20) in the afternoon.
