They are taking their sweet time because they want to get it right first time and do not want any mistakes/faults. It's both a matter of pride and reputation and since it is state-owned, they can afford such delays.

They've got a lot of orders, though.

China's COMAC says C919 jet completed second test flight

Quote:
SHANGHAI (Reuters) - China’s domestically developed C919 passenger jet completed its second test flight on Thursday, the jet’s maker said, but the duration and near five-month gap since its first flight have raised questions over whether its latest delivery target can be met.

The narrow-body C919, which will compete with Boeing Co’s (BA.N) 737 and the Airbus SE (AIR.PA) A320, is a symbol of China’s ambition to muscle into a global jet market estimated to be worth $2 trillion over the next 20 years.

However, the program has faced lengthy delays and missed its original target of delivery to customers by 2016 - a date reportedly pushed back to 2020. Sales to date have been restricted largely to its home market because it has yet to be certified by regulators in the United States and Europe.

Thursday’s flight was the second for the initial C919 test model, whose maiden flight was on May 5. The second of six planned test aircraft, which achieved power-on of its systems in July, has yet to fly.

Incorrect. Bombarier may be a Canadian company but it's rail division is headquartered in Berlin Germany. Bombardier Transportation has almost no interest in developing its railcar manufacturing in Canada. Most or all of it's manufacturing, admin, R&D and business is in Europe. Heck, Bombardier Transportation has more assets and facilities in China than Canada. As Chris Murrphy best puts it to the Toronto Star.

It’s [Bombardier Transport] a European company. The head office and design centre is in Germany. BA (Bombardier Aerospace) is Canadian; BT’s (Bombardier Transportation’s) a German company. You might as well call it Siemens. Canada is a branch plant”

The C919 was mentioned in chairman Xi's long speech for the recent 19th CPC National Congress.
Quote:
* We have made major achievements in economic development.
...
Through devoting great energy to implementing the innovation-driven development strategy, we have seen much accomplished toward making China a country of innovators, with major advances made in science and technology, including the successful launch of Tiangong-2 space lab, the commissioning of the deep-sea manned submersible Jiaolong and of the five-hundred-meter aperture spherical telescope (FAST) Tianyan, the launch of the dark matter probe satellite Wukong and the quantum science satellite Mozi, and the test flight of the airliner C919.

China's C919 jet completes first long-distance flight

(Reuters) - China's self-developed C919 passenger jet completed its first long-distance flight on Friday, in a milestone that its manufacturer said marks the plane's move into an airworthiness certification phase.

The Commercial Aircraft Corp of China Ltd (COMAC) said in a statement the C919 flew for 2 hours and 23 minutes from Shanghai to the central Chinese city of Xi'an, traveling more than 1,300 km (800 miles) and reaching an altitude of 7,800 meters (25,590 feet).

The jet, which China wants to compete with Boeing Co's 737 and the Airbus SE A320, is a symbol of China's civil aerospace ambitions. It will remain in Xi'an to undergo further testing, the planemaker said.

"This ferry flight indicates that the C919 possess the ability to fly inter-city routes," COMAC said in the statement. "(It) marks the move into research and development flight-testing and airworthiness certification work."

The latest flight is the plane's sixth test since it flew for the first time on May 5. Analysts had questioned the long time gaps between previous test flights.

COMAC is aiming to obtain certification for the plane from Chinese regulators as well as Europe's aviation safety regulator, which in April agreed to start the certification process.

COMAC said it planned to eventually test six C919 planes and will carry out the first flight for its second jet by the end of this year. The plane currently has 27 customers who have placed orders and commitments for 730 jets, it added.
