The pilots who are trained on the Shandong are only needed later. Then why hurry now? Always remember: the Shandong was not included in the original plan, it was built additionally.

Liaoning and Shandong are aircraft carriers to gain experience. And the Chinese do it very thoroughly. They even came up with floating institutes that accompany the two aircraft carriers.

I know that. But, maybe I'm not informed enough, I don't recall that Shandong did sail since commissioning?

Can you explain that? I'm here to learn something.
