SHANGHAI: The first regional jet produced in China's initiative to compete in the commercial aircraft market made its debut flight on Tuesday carrying 70 passengers.
The ARJ21-700 jet is one of a series of initiatives launched by the ruling Communist Party to transform China from the world's low-cost factory into a creator of profitable technology in aviation, clean energy and other fields.
The plane operated by Chengdu Airlines took its passengers from the western city of Chengdu to Shanghai in two hours.

It is wrong to compare India with China as China is far far superior and ahead. Take bullet train, passenger aircraft and their infrastructure.
Bullet train - maglev are not chinese technology .. But agree with you on their micro electronics infrastructure.
China is sure ahead in stealing technology. They offered top form a JV with a Japanese compant for the bullet train but after they obtained the blueprints they cancelled the JV so they are cheaters as well. Their passenger aircraft is real Chinese as almost all parts are imported from the US and Europe. As far as their superior infrastructure goes their lifespan is just 20 years compared to 40 years in developed countries because of the inferior materials they use. But hey, the Chinese will like your comment.
whoever travel in those jetliners should be brave heart!
Yup! It''s been tested by the Chinese Military! Hahahaha!!!
What would you do if you were suppose to land in China and take one of these flights to reach a destination..
simple..i will have brave heart!
In that case, India is very brave to install nuclear reactors imported from China
sorry due, most technology is stolen or imported.
not me ...even if they let me travel in 1st class for free.
learn to appreciate others, has India ever made a commercial aircraft? we cannot just find fault with others when we are behind China in almost everything. Their GDP is 5 times our GDP, with almost similar population.
China made wonders but for selfish motives
Congrats to China

As usual, anything China does is bad and jokes. Facts are:
China operates much more flights, bullet trains and cars than India but
India has far more traffic accidents. Be objective
India should NEVER even consider buying or leasing these aircrafts from China.
