AECC last reported the CJ-1000A was going to be certified sometime in 2023. They released a promotional video reiterating that the CJ-1000A is "Coming Soon". I still say 2023 sounds like [email protected]

0:45 >> better than ICAO CAEP/6 environmental standard, 50% emissions standard
0:47 >> takeoff thrust 12913-13608kgF
0:48 >> ICAO Chapter 14 noise, 10.8 EPNdB
0:54 >> resin-based composite blades

The latest features of the CJ-1000A looks like it jumped several generations in 1 shot in only a few years. How is that even possible?
Simple, just make the initial spec much lower than what AECC was able to, then you get the feeling of surprising jump.

If you pay attention, you can see that very often Chinese developers will state a minimum (lowest) specification while having a good chance of exceeding it. In other words, Chinese are very conservatives in making promises or expectations unlike the westerners who aims high and reaches low.

For this very reason, if AECC said 2023 there is a fair chance.

How long does it take for a new engine to mount on a plane till finished all the testing and get certified? I read that CJ1000a is going to be mounted on the Russian plane for testing and I don't know when it will start.
