According to a poll by Global Times, nearly 80 percent of adults expressed a willingness to fly in Chinese-made airplanes.
By 10 pm on August 18, 5925 people has joined the poll in total. Among them, 4680 people chose "yes", accounting for 79 percent of all the participants; however, 1245 chose the opposite selection, taking up 21 percent.
The netizens who would like to take the Chinese-made planes said that they have a price advantage, and there is no reason to doubt about the quality of Chinese-made jets after they have passed an array of serious assessments.
Someone expressed that China can be trusted in the hi-tech field. For example, China has reliable technology for launch vehicles and high-speed trains.
Others also stated that they would support home-made jets forever, and hoped that the jets' business can be bigger and stronger. Only by developing its own national industry, will China catch the world’s scientific and technological giants more effectively.
The netizens who voted against it, did so mainly for the "safety" issue. They think that China's technology on jets still has a long way to go, while at the same time the responsibility of airlines was also significant. In addition, some of netizens hoped that China's aircraft engines can be improved.
