One of COMAC's C919 aircraft (B-001E) performed two experimental test flights yesterday. This flight is believed to be the first C919 flight since February.
COMAC conducted one flight in the morning and one in the afternoon. The morning test flight was completed near the airport, while the afternoon test flight flew further away.
The flights were conducted at the newly-built flight test base, specifically for civil aircraft models, in Weinan, Shaanxi Province.
The first delivered C919 aircraft, with the handpicked registration number B-919A, was transferred to China Eastern Airlines. The Shanghai-based airline is the launch customer of the type, having signed a contract with COMAC in 2021 for five C919s, and has been heavily involved in the development process.
