well, General He Weiliang, the deputy commaner of PLAAF said in the interview on CCTV that CHinese 5 G bird will "enter into service in 8-10 years"

here is the cited phrases:
:“现在是紧锣密鼓进行中,正在进行研制,根据有关资料透露,可能很快要进行首飞,首飞又很快进行试飞,很快就装备部队,根据现在情况,可能还有八到十年吧!”
and my translation:
All researchs are advancing in full preparation . According to related files,the first flight might be carried out soon. test-flights will follow the first flight promptly.
It will enter into service of PLAAF before long.According to current advancing pace, it might be 8-10 years......
here are the screenshots of the interview.....

Obviously ,what the screenshots refered is not J10,but J-XX..

Russia pledged last year that its PkaFa will carry out it first flight in 2009.



If the check Russian issued get returned again, then the advancement of its PkaFa will lag behind CHinese J-XX.

well, I find that since Soviet collapsed, the checks Russian issue have been often bounced.

First China has to loose its dependence on Russian AL-31 engines by making WS-10 performance equivalent to its russian counterpart.

Till date China hasn't designed a single fighter plane whose air-frame is not borrowed from foreign countries fighter concepts. I am pretty confident that Pak-Fa would take its first flight by year-end or early next year. Sukhoi's CEO is not a crazy to claim the same without enough knowledge of its progress.

Source: Global Times [02:36 November 10 2009] Comments By Deng Jingyin

A senior military officer said Monday China's military pilots could expect to jump into the most advanced fighter jets in 8 to 10 years, while President Hu Jintao called for a "new chapter" in the development of China's air force.

Hu made the remarks while he met senior officers, experts, role models and pilots with representatives from People's Liberation Army Air Force Sunday, one of the events held to mark the 60th anniversary of the air force.China's national defense and its army's modernization are confronted with new situations and tasks. In accordance with the requirements of both offensive and defensive operations, the air force is urged to strengthen the development of military system, Hu said.

The same day, He Weirong, deputy commander of the air force told China Central Television that military pilots could expect to jump into the most advanced fighter jets in 8 to 10 years that will have stealth capability. He said that the planes are in development and will match or exceed the capability of similar jets in existence today. Worldwide, the 4th generation jet fighters, with the US-made F-22 raptor as the bench mark, is also known as the 5th generation fighter planes based on Russian standard.
They will have the 4S ability, which are stealth, super cruise, super maneuverability and short take-off.

"Compared with the 3rd and the improved 3.5 generation, the 4th generation fighters have overwhelming technological advantages. Its most striking characteristic is the capability of invisibility, which also could be called low detectability," Dai Xu, an air force colonel and military strategist, told the Global Times Monday.

Currently, the F-22 is the only in-service 4th generation fighter in the world. The F-35 and Russia's T-50 are in the development process.
Chinese 4th generation fighter is the 4th one entering into the actual development process.
