The newly established Aero Engine Corporation of China (AECC) has launched a research institute that aims to support the country's efforts to build powerplants for its front-line military/commercial aircraft. The Aero Engine Academy of China is located in Beijing and will be responsible for leading AECC's research and development (R&D) activities, said AECC chairman Cao Jianguo in comments to China's state-run Xinhua news agency on 28 December.
