China's Comac is the designer of the C919 narrow-body jet. The capacity of the commercial jet is 190 passengers.

Comac is also the designer of the earlier ARJ-21 regional jet. The ARJ-21 has a smaller passenger capacity of 90.

Comac spent eight years (2008-2016) testing the ARJ-21. The experience-gained was very valuable and is probably accelerating the test-schedule for the larger C919. After all, the basic test procedures are similar (such as certification for cold/hot weather, night-time, altitude, etc.).

Last week, Comac displayed an exact-replica flight simulator of the C919 to the public. The following photographs offer an exciting glimpse into the C919 high-tech cockpit controls. China's C919 airliner was built to compete against the Boeing 737 and the Airbus A320.

I thought all categories of planes had their own flight simulators even before the actual planes were up and running. On-job training is on the actual planes themselves as sim training alone does not guarantee you have all the knowledge and skills to be truly safe in the cockpit.
