The 2014 edition of the China Aerospace Propulsion Technology Summit (CAPTS) is set to take place in Chengdu on May 28-29. As a major design and production base of three core components of Chinese high bypass aero engines, Chengdu will play host to global experts from aero engine companies and research institutes to exchange insights and expertise. Among the experts are high-level representatives from CFM, MTU Aero Engines, Pratt & Whitney, GE Aviation, and AVIC.
One of the key interests of all participants is of course the development of China’s domestic aero engine industry. The development of indigenous engines to power China’s own aircraft is central to the national government’s aerospace development strategy. This includes engines for the ARJ-21 regional jet as well as the C919 ‘trunkliner’. AVIC is investing heavily in its R&D efforts and has signed numerous international collaboration agreements to speed up the development. CAPTS aims to provide participants with key insights through keynote speeches, panel discussions, an exhibition and showcase, one-to-one business meetings and site visits.
The summit is organized by the Chinese Society of Aeronautics and Astronautics (CSAA), in cooperation with AVIC Gas Turbine Establishment and AVIC Chengdu Engine, and Galleon Consulting. Download the agenda/brochure here. Refer to the CAPTS website for more information and registration.
