The 100th tail wing tip for Boeing 777 aircraft manufactured by Shenyang-based AVIC SAC Commercial Aircraft Company Ltd was delivered to the US aviation giant on Feb 18.

The company is the world's only supplier of tail wing tips for the Boeing 777 and the production of the parts represents the first joint project involving metal bonding between the two companies, following an agreement signed in November 2014. The Shenyang supplier delivered the first tail wing tip on May 25, 2016.

The tail wing tip is assembled using a large curved skin and honeycomb-glued wall panels which are complex to manufacture.

Delivering the 100th tail wing tip marks a significant achievement in the history of our joint partnership, said a member of staff at the Shenyang supplier.

In recent years, AVIC SAC Commercial Aircraft Co has continuously improved its scientific research and manufacturing capabilities, intensified technological innovation, improved project management and control, and extended the manufacture of composite materials to the metal bonding field. The firm is currently able to produce four tail wing tips per month.

In the future, the company plans to expand its partnership with Boeing, with the aim of becoming a first-class international aviation parts manufacturing firm.
