As a new player in the Big passanger jet plane developing, china will  its first own-made plane(C919) to domestic airliners. Without too much pactical test, will you choose china-made plane?  do you trust them for the consideration of safety.
How would the chinese made planes compete with giants like Boeing and Airbus?
will you be one of the passengers of the C919'S debut fligth?


China's first home-made C919 jumbo jet may receive its first order before the end of this year with three major domestic airlines likely to be the launch customers, Thursday's Beijing Daily reported.

The C919, developed by state-owned manufacturer Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (COMAC), is a narrow body passenger plane seating around 150 people with the popular Airbus A320 and Boeing 737 as its rivals.


A team working on finding the launch customer of C919 was established on May 18. Deputy director of Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) Wang Changshun and representatives from Air China, China Southern Airlines and China Eastern Airlines all attended the team's conference Tuesday, Beijing Daily said.

The three carriers are the largest airlines in China and believed to be the potential customers of C919.

I would trust planes that have proven designs more. That is just a fact of engineering; new designs are more likely to have problems. Over time, the problems are discovered and solved. It has nothing to do with the fact that the plane is designed by Chinese engineers. Likewise, if there was a French or American start-up company with a new design I would trust their planes less also.
