The Commercial Aircraft Corporation of China (Comac) has completed static load testing on the ARJ21 regional jet.

This will pave the way for flight tests of the ARJ21, says Comac.

The tests were completed at Xi'an in Shaanxi province, under the supervision of the Civil Aviation Administration of China and the US FAA, it adds.

Comac is due to make first deliveries of the ARJ21 to launch operator Chengdu Airlines early in 2011.
