The author offers opinions on Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China (Comac) and its planned development of the C919 jet transport. It is stated that the C919 will never be completed and certified, as Comac's aerospace engineers and executives have little experience with commercial aircraft and that the company is outsourcing almost all elements of the program.
