He stressed the need to make full use of the new system to mobilize resources across the country and prioritize safety and quality, making consistent efforts to achieve new breakthroughs in key technologies.
Safety and reliability must be paramount, and all potential security threats must be eliminated, Xi Jinping told the project team.
During the visit to the exhibition of achievements of the project, Xi Jinping was told about the design, production, experiments, test flights of the C919 large passenger aircraft.
On the road to the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation, we need to focus on a long-term strategy, set specific goals based on existing realities, choose the right path for technological development, and continue to do our work consistently and properly, Xi Jinping stressed.
According to him, in order to ascend to the top of the global technological landscape, it is necessary to set high goals and be bold.
The C919 large passenger aircraft is the first long-haul airliner developed in China. The aircraft successfully completed its first flight in 2017 and received a type certificate issued by the Civil Aviation Administration of China after passing all airworthiness certification procedures in September 2022. Delivery of the first C919 aircraft is expected by the end of this year.
The successful development of the C919 large passenger aircraft and its receipt of a type certificate testifies to China’s ability to independently develop similar world-class liners, which is an important milestone in the development of the aviation industry.
