written by australianaviation.com.au | June 30, 2011

Airbus will aim to have half of all A320 rudder production take place in China by 2014, after signing an agreement with joint venture partner AVIC HAFEI in Berlin yesterday.

Under the agreement, Hafei’s Airbus Composite Manufacturing Centre (HMC) will increase its production of A320 rudders progressively from its current rate of three shipsets per month to 21 shipsets per month by 2014.

“The agreement demonstrates our long term commitment to the partnership with Chinese aviation industry. The ramp up of the rudder production at HMC will be a strong support to the further development of the joint venture,” Airbus president and CEO, Tom Enders said.
