    I believe the intent is to compete with US engine manufacturers so I think they would like to have their own engine. The key is that the engines develop high performance in conjunction with fuel efficiency/fuel savings.

    It take a long time to develop airliner jet engine typically it take more than a decade or two Anyway here is the occasion all the prototype return to the factory. So the photos are recent

    China's self-developed #C919 passenger planes take first family photos as all three prototypes that have been built returned to their home base in Shanghai on Feb 8.

    From what I have read the Chinese civilian airliner engine program seems to be a mess. Enough that the Chinese government, unlike usual, has two competing engine designs last I heard. Hopefully at least one of them will be successful. Not that other countries don't have their problems either. So what might happen is the engine will happen later or have worse fuel consumption/reliability or both.
