China's Comac ARJ21 regional jet has completed flight-testing in high temperature and humidity conditions.

One of the four test aircraft (serial number 103) completed the test flight on 2 August, says Comac.

The aircraft took off on the test flight from Sanya Phoenix airport in southern China and landed 2h 55min later at Xian Yanliang airport, adds Comac.

First deliveries of the 90-seat, General Electric CF34-10-powered twinjet are due to be made to launch operator Chengdu Airlines in early 2011.
