China's C919 Jet Conducts High-temperature Test Flights in Xinjiang

Jul 15,2020

China's indigenously-developed C919 large passenger aircraft has started high-temperature test flights in Turpan, a city known as the land of fire in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. 


The test plane arrived in Turpan on Sunday and the testing will last for a month. 


The test flight team from the Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China, the manufacturer, decided to hold the tests and collect performance data at Turpan airport after analyzing meteorological reports of airports nationwide, according to Wang Lifei, head of the airport's safety and quality supervision bureau. 


Turpan is renowned for its harsh desert climate, especially its extreme summer. During June and August, the average temperature can surpass 38 degrees Celsius. 


The C919 conducted a successful maiden flight in 2017. Now the aircraft has started intensive test flights from various airports to make sure performance can meet airworthiness standards.

At the present stage, the C919 will enter the multi-airport and multi-area cooperative test flight mode, and enter the high-intensity, high-efficiency and high-quality flight test stage, so as to ensure that all performances of the aircraft meet airworthiness standards. Affected by the COVID-19, the aviation industry in many countries has slowed down this year, but China's aviation industry is still vigorous and developing rapidly.

Under this background, the 10th China Aviation Industry Summit will be held on October 28th -29th, in Liyang City, Jiangsu Province, China. We look forward to your participation.
