China’s first passenger jet, the C919, made its maiden journey from Shanghai Pudong airport on Friday, May 5th. China is aiming to become one of the world’s top manufacturers of large commercial aircraft to compete with Airbus’s A320 and Boeing’s 737-800. Breyden Products Nomex Lacing Tape, AA-52084 will be used to secure the wire harnesses for the new aircraft produced in China. The aircraft is likely to go through months or years of demanding certification tests before flying with passengers. We are pleased that Breyden Nomex Lacing Tape was chosen as the preferred method to secure the harnesses.
