Shanghai, April 13 (reporter Jia Yuankun) 13, China’s fourth aircraft with independent intellectual property rights ARJ21-700 aircraft flew successfully in Shanghai, marking China’s new regional aircraft access to high-intensity, large density test phase, which speed up the ARJ21-700 aircraft for flight test and evidence gathering, scheduled to obtain airworthiness certificates is important.
13 时 09 points, the fourth aircraft ARJ21-700 aircraft began to taxi, to accelerate into the sky; 1 hour and 7 minutes after the plane was returning, at 14:16 a safe landing, a successful maiden flight. The maximum flying height of 3440 meters, the maximum speed of 245.
fourth aircraft ARJ21-700 aircraft on October 23, 2009 to complete the whole machine docking, March 13, 2010 to complete assembly into the test station, on March 22 was unsealed car engine.
China Commercial Aircraft Co. Ltd. Vice President, ARJ21 regional jet project commander Luo Ronghuai new introduction, after a successful maiden flight, the aircraft will first all-state as a whole configuration of the aircraft for airworthiness evidence test, take simulated flight icing ice type and nature, function and reliability of inspection flight test mission and special commitment to the other FAA airworthiness requirements of the new test mission.
ARJ21-700 aircraft is the China’s first international airworthiness standards in accordance with the development and production, with independent intellectual property rights in the new short-range regional jet aircraft. Currently, ARJ21 new regional aircraft have completed more than 350 landing flight, more than 400 hours total flight time. The first limit in accordance with the terms of airworthiness environmental projects under the field verification and cold cold ground tests flight test was January 24, 2010 in Inner Mongolia Hailar success.
ARJ21-700 aircraft were scheduled for four test aircraft, three aircraft were on November 28, 2008, July 1, 2009, September 12, 2009 the successful first flight, put into test evidence.
March 16, the FAA ARJ21-700 aircraft for airworthiness review started shadow, which is China’s large jet aircraft for the first time to accept the FAA review of evidence.
2010 年, ARJ21 new regional jet project to carry out a large number of flight test and airworthiness certification of the work. Currently, ARJ21-700 aircraft orders and domestic and international agreements intended to reach a total of 240 orders.
