GE Aviation and China’s AVIC Systems announced plans to form a joint venture company to develop and market integrated avionics systems for commercial aircraft customers. The new avionics company, to be headquartered in China and launched in mid-2010, will offer fully integrated, open architecture avionics and services for future commercial aircraft programs. The company is looking to compete for the COMAC C919 narrow-body aircraft program. While based in China, the JV will target the U.S. and the global market. It is expected to create 200 jobs in the U.S. for GE's Aviation Systems business.
