The fifth test aircraft of the C919, China's first domestically manufactured narrow-body passenger jet, took part in a test flight in Shanghai on October 24, indicating it is on a faster track to gaining airworthiness certification before entering the market in 2021, industry experts said.

The code number of the fifth test jet is 105 and the last test jet of its kind, known as the 106 test aircraft, is expected to complete its first test flight by the end of the year.

The 105 test aircraft will mainly undertake test flights in special weather conditions such as high temperatures and extremely cold weather. In addition, it will take related tests on environmental control, power supply, fuselage liquid discharge and other subjects, said its manufacturer Commercial Aircraft Corp of China.

The first four C919 test jets—the 101, 102, 103 and 104—are undergoing more test flights, static tests, and other ground tests at several testing bases, including Yanliang district in Xi'an, Shaanxi province, Dongying in Shandong province, and Nanchang in Jiangxi province, COMAC said.

So far, 815 orders have been placed for the C919 from home and abroad.
