China's large aircraft have seen much development lately. A 200-ton military aircraft will make its debut at the end of this year; it will be China's largest military aircraft.

The aircraft was independently developed and created by AVIC (China Aviation Industry Group) Xi'an Aircraft Industry (Group) Company Ltd., said Hu Xiaofeng, president of AVIC Aircraft Corporation. At the same time, production of the 80-ton civil aircraft C919 is being stepped up.

In addition, China's L-15 Falcon training plane created by AVIC has drawn a lot of attention at the international Air Show in Dubai. Many countries have already sent pilots to China to carry out test flights. AVIC is expected to win a considerable number of orders.
