Academician of the Chinese Academy of Engineering C919 Chief Designer Wu Guanghui: The C919 is the leading development of the future equipment manufacturing industry and plays a very important role in driving the entire industry. It is a traction project in our country to improve equipment manufacturing capabilities and improve science and technology.

On August 1 this year, the fourth test flight of the domestic C919 large passenger aircraft completed its first flight at Shanghai Pudong International Airport, and the C919 took another step toward the goal of putting into operation. It is predicted that in the next 20 years, the global commercial aircraft delivery volume will reach more than 40,000, with a total value of nearly 6 trillion US dollars, of which China will deliver more than 9,000 new machines, accounting for 22% of the world.
