China’s first C919 passenger plane to be delivered for commercial use completed its maiden test flight on Saturday morning, according to its manufacturer Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC). COMAC said the pilot and engineers accomplished all the pre-set tasks during the 182-minute flight, and the aircraft is in good condition.
If you arean American，walking is good for you
Huge cngratulations to the engineering team of C919
Sooner we will see a full indigenous fleet
I hope COMAC can develop all the indigenous parts including the engine to bypass any pential sanctions from the US. Slowly but surely China will have every components of the plane fully from local sources.

Congratulations People’s Republic of China
Congratulations Сhina! Finally Airbus and Boeing have a worthy competitor. Wish the plane safe flights and a successful and long-lasting service.
Indigenously and independently development of aircraft is the ultimate goal of China’s aviation industry. Congrats to the successful flight of the first C919 operational airliner.
Excellent progress and is zing to witness the enormous technological advance in many field. Beware of nasty sanctions from hostile elements
Big congratulations! Actually, it was ready long ago, CAAC was ho to get certifications from FAA and Europe’s as well, but the po itical obstructions were insane, too strong a competitor. From now on, CAAC will set their own aviation standards, even higher than their counterparts, nice.
The most important parts of the plane was the radar and engine. And I think china will used their own developed engine for their own passenger planes.
It’s about time a third force appears in aerospace business . Thank you China for this great decentralization.

Best wishes to the Chinese domestically made commercial airliners.
I can feel they are super conscious about the importance of safety.
Good China. If capable of sending crafts to the moon,mars ,own space station for sure you must make own planes.
What a beautiful maiden flight! China must learn not to rely on anyone in all spheres! Jiayou!

Remember the aircraft type C919. You’ll be hearing a lot about it very soon with all of its upcoming problems and issues.
The Flight Control and Engine needs to be indigenized fast to be a worthy compettion to Boeing and Airbus.

是的！ 恭喜！这是个大新闻。 来自塞尔维亚的尊重
Please start producing quickly we are waiting
This is really the end of US hegemony.
It may not be completely better than the 737 or 320, but it sure would be cher
I think the first Buyr will be Russia as they can’t get parts and planes from USA any more after Ukraine war
Its more economical to buy Chinese commercial plane.
Considering it took five years for the Chinese to develop the tip of a ballpoint pen, there is no way I would travel on a flying Chinese jigsaw puzzle!…..not even if the tickets were given away for free!….I wonder if the Wuhan Food Markets are supplying the onboard catering!
