    Hi guys,
    I read on the news that China is now able to manufacture T1000 grade Carbon fibre.
    Is that true?
    If true, would the newly acquired technology help hasten the production rate of advanced fighter jets like the J20 ?
    thanks.

    Interesting article on PRC's civilian airliner / aircraft manufacturers. Particularly interesting for me:
    "The International Civil Aviation Organization has forecast that China will be the world's largest civil aviation market by mid-2020.

    In 2018, China's civil aviation industry hit a new record with more than 100,000 flights. Passenger numbers were up 11.4 percent year on year to 610 million and cargo was up 6.3 percent to 7.5 million tonnes, according to the CAAC."

    URUMQI, Jan. 24 (Xinhua) -- Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region will start preliminary work on nine new airports this year as part of the efforts to improve connectivity and transform itself into a transportation hub along the Road and Belt.

    Preliminary work will begin this year for new airports in Taxkorgan, Zhaosu, Yutian, Bayanbulak, Hoboksar, Usu, Qitai, Barkol and Alaer in Xinjiang. Airports in Kashgar, Yining, Aksu, Tacheng, Altay Prefecture and Turpan will be expanded to handle more passengers, the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) Xinjiang Regional Administration said.

    In 2018, Xinjiang's accumulated investment in airport construction was 3.15 billion yuan (465 million U.S. dollars). Currently, Xinjiang has 21 airports.

    These airports handled 30 million passengers in 2018. So far, 49 airline companies operate in the region. They operate 257 air routes and enable Urumqi's connection with 73 cities in China and 17 countries worldwide.
