Did they conduct "crash tests" with some of our CD dummies (those over patriots) ?

I am waiting for that to happen first.

I generally don't trust any plane that hasn't been tranporting people for at least one year without accident. No matter whether Airbus, Boeing or Embraer or AVIC. I'm not necessarily afraid the plane might crash - but it might get delayed due to software or electronics troubles, which is annoying enough for me. So I prefer established planes. (I also haven't flied the new Airbus A380 yet... but on my next journey to singapore, I certainly will).

However, after the Chinese Airplane has been flying passengers around the world (or at least across China) for at least one year, I won't mind taking it - if there's enough space for me :)
So far, the main problem when I was flying with Chinese airlines weren't saftey concerns, but the mere fact that there seems to be an ongoing discrimination in China against people who are taller than 1.85 m, even in business class sometimes... Anyway, they tend to serve better food than many western airlines and as the flights are short and often not very busy, I was always satisfied as a customer anyway^^

It looks nice on the photo, (any photoshop touch ups? wa ha ha ha)

Let's watch how it performs, probably domestic passengers, domestic airlines gets to be GUINEA PIGS for the first year or so, till people get to gain confidence on the C919 passenger jets! The Chinese military should buy a few dozen to test it on military personnel traffic, so that the people gain confidence.

China is huge, the military is huge, some 2.5 million people. The military test flight, checks on quality, checks on maintenance level needs will help AVIC 1 business tremendously!
