    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.

    Where did you hear that rumor mongering forum? As far as I know there are always 2 contending prototype for civilian airline engine . Pratt and Whitney spend nearly 3 decades to develop engine and still they have problem . So it is not unusual No need to condescend
    Anyway Here is the production rate for ARJ 21 via JSCh

    现在ARJ21的生产节拍是15天一架,今年计划交付20架。
    Currently the ARJ21's production cycle is 15 days, and 20 planes are scheduled for delivery this year.

    NOTE: this is from COMAC during an interview aired on CCTV.

    Chengdu airlines received its 11th unit last month
    Genghis Khan has 1 and due to get 2nd in March
    Urumqi airlines to get its 1st unit in the next few weeks

    so we should see 3 operators within a month or so with 14 units flying
