    In 2005, a cooperation agreement was signed with AVIC (China Aviation Industry Corporation), for the delivery of more than 200 Arriel 2C under license.

    Turbomeca in China

    Turbomeca is continuing and creating even closer links between Chinese and French industries. Local presence and proximity support are reinforced with Turbomeca (Beijing) Helicopter Engines.

    Furthermore, Turbomeca performed industrial worksharing with Beijing Turbomeca Changkong, the first joint company between Turbomeca and an AVIC company, to assemble and tests the hydro-mechanical modules (HCU, FCU) of turbine engines.

    Powering more than 300 helicopters in China, Turbomeca is the local leading helicopter engine supplier: one helicopter out of two is equipped with Turbomeca engines or licensed products.

    Turbomeca has established ties with Chinese airframers HAIG (Harbin Aircraft Industries Group) & CAIG (Changhe Aircraft Industry Group), as well as with AVIC’s helicopter engine manufacturing entities Dongan and SAIC through various collaboration programs in the 2.5 to 7 ton helicopter market.
