In June , the 1st opening day of the Paris Air Show 2011, the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, Ltd. and its subsidiary, the COMAC Shanghai Aircraft Manufacturing Co., Ltd., held a special ceremony with CFM International, signing the C919/LEAP Integrated Process Systems (IPS) main contract.
