This is a milestone in China’s aviation industry, as it marks the first large Chinese-made passenger aircraft to ever be built in accordance with international airworthiness standards and owning independent intellectual property rights. It lines up in direct competition with Airbus SE’s Airbus A320 and Boeing Co’s Boeing 737 aircraft.
