ARJ21 preparing for November test flight
The ARJ21 is in final preparations for its inaugural test flight, which is expected to take place by the end of next month at the latest, according to Commercial Aircraft Corp. of China Chairman Zhang Qingwei.
The 90-seat ARJ21-700 rolled out last December, but owing to "key suppliers' failure to specify conditions for system tests," its maiden flight, originally scheduled for March, was delayed (ATWOnline, April 1).
