    Cool Major manufacturers of civil & general aviation aircraft!!!

    Major manufacturers of civil & general aviation aircraft!
    Airbus, Boeing and Tupoloev mainly manufacturer the wide-body and narrow-body jet airliners, while Bombardier and Embraer concentrate on regional airlines (200911). In order to make an aircraft the manufacturers have to source a number of different and unique parts to be able to construct the aircraft. There is a large network of specialized parts suppliers throughout the world that support the requirements of these manufacturers, who sometimes only provide the initial design and final assembly in their own plants (200911).


    There are five major manufacturers of civil transport aircraft these include:




    1. Airbus
    2. Boeing
    3. Bombardier
    4. Embraer
    5. Tupoloev

    Yes you are correct that Boeing and Airbus are the major manufacturer of aircrafts. But there are many other companies who make passenger aircrafts, mostly commercial jets and business jets:
    Below is the list of few such companies;
    1. Bombardier (from Canada)
    2. Cessna (Now part of Textron, USA)
    3. Embraer (from Brazil)
    4. Lockheed Martin (Mostly military aircrafts, again from USA)
    5. Northrop Grumman (Mostly military aircrafts, again from USA)
    6. Bell (Passenger Helicopters)
    7. BAe system, Fokker, Piaggio, Shorts (from UK).
    .....and many other :-)
    As far as Russia is concerned, they were superior in this field once upon a time (USSR era to be exact). Companies like Irkut, Sukhoi, Ilyushin, MIG, Tupolev, Antonov etc. belonged to USSR. All these companies are now merged together and is called the United Aircraft Corporation (UAC).
    China is also doing good in this field now a days. Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. (Comac) is one of the manufacturers of Chinese commercial aircrafts.
